Zero Base

Exhibition Dates:  September 4 - November 1, 2014

Artist's Opening Reception
Thursday, September 4
5:00 - 8:00 pm

The work of Marco Breuer ranges from geometric to painterly; if we were not told that these works are photographic, we may mistake them for painting or collage.  The work is in-keeping with Breuer's continued exploration of the photographic media.  He pushes the limits and boundaries of photography, and this new work again engages through physicality. We see Breuer using serial repetition and the application of systems through process to the works in Zero Base.  Through different approaches, Breuer builds up and wears down the photographic paper.  He uses techniques such as folding, burning, scratching, sanding, and scraping to modify the surface of photograph.  Many actions are repeated, and we can feel time and layers build through handling and removal.  Folding patterns are reminiscent of the wrapping patterns of packages, and help us begin to think of these works as more than images but objects that challenge our notions of a photograph and engage a broader visual dialogue free of the constraints of media.
