“COMING HOME”, Photographs by DEBBIE O’DONNELL , Red Filter Gallery

Coming Home, Debbie O’Donnell

Hailing from Australia, Debbie O’Donnell captures a unique vision from “Down Under”.

Returning to Western Australia after an absence of 18 years was a strange and emotional experience. The combination of returning to my roots and feeling home, but also feeling disconnected. Immersed in the comfort of nature; listening to the rustle of leaves and branches swaying in the wind, was a way of surrendering and releasing the hold of the past. It was a journey of reflection, reconnecting and coming home to myself.

Now through August 31.

Budding 01, Emel Karakozak

Some wonderfully enigmatic work by Emel Karakozak is now available for viewing at Red Filter Gallery. The kaleidoscope effects combined with a theme of regeneration is worth the “trip”.

Woman is a being through which man feel connected to nature as woman is very similar to nature in birth-giving and life-blooming characteristics. That is why many languages use the term of ‘mother nature’ while referring to nature. Since she is the bridge between life and man, and the forgiving despite all. She is able to recreate herself and that is the source to her characteristics. Woman not only causes a miracle by giving birth, but also has the ability to reconstitute herself spiritually.And she fulfills this by putting herself into the center.

Now through July 31.

Drained by Bronwen Hazlett

Drained, Bronwen Hazlett

Using an alternative printing process, Bronwen Hazlett brings a mystic touch to abstract photographic scenes …

During the process of painting chemistry and exposing imagery, I push emotions and reality into something indiscernible but felt.   I coerce chemical reactions like my own reactions to hopes colliding with reality.

#46 Photograms  Literary©Wendy Paton

One of the great beauties of photography is the unique perspective photographers can create within this flexible medium. Such is the case with Wendy Paton’s latest exhibition at Artsource International at the Artsource Loft in New York City where Paton’s works, are curated as “Photograms | Literary”. The collection takes special advantage of the visual architectural elements of books, and are presented in an almost ethereal light. These Black and White visual constructs are indeed unique.

The exhibition features an extensive selection of Paton’s series of dynamic, gelatin silver Photograms using the literary and artistic world of books as her subject.
Utilizing the age-old photographic process also known as camera-less photography, the artist has created a visual language that metamorphose a literal and literary object, the book, into an interpretation of artistic abstraction. Paton boldly emphasizes the contrast of the printed word on paper and the fast conquering digital form, rapidly changing both the literary and photographic mediums. “As printed books are fading from our lives, being replaced by the digital medium, so is the gelatin silver photograph being replaced by our mobile phones and digital photographic technology.”

Paton’s new book “Photograms l Literary, FLIGHT”, a limited edition, signed and numbered artist book (pub. Brilliant – Press, USA) will be introduced at the opening with the artist in attendance.

Wendy Paton is an award winning American photographer best known for her dramatic black & white, candid, nocturnal portraits, first seen in her series and monograph, Visages de Nuit. Paton’s work, including selections of Photograms l Literary, has been exhibited in solo U.S. and international gallery and museum exhibitions. Her photographs are included in the the permanent collections of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France – Spallart Collection, Austria – Musee de la Photographie, Belgium – James A. Michener Art Museum, U.S. – International Center of Photography, NY,U.S. – Lumiere Brothers Center of Photography, Moscow – Personal Collection of Prince Albert II of Monaco, and many notable private collections.

The exhibit will be opening May 17th and concluding on June 30th.

Wickecheoke Creek 01 by Diane Levell

WICKECHEOKE CREEK 01, Diane Levell

Diane Levell has been creating wonderful images for decades. Using straight technique or alternative print processes, she has always kept the image itself in the forefront for viewer contemplation.

In my work I have consistently striven for a high level of craftsmanship and aesthetic quality. And I wanted to use the photographic medium to its fullest extent; “straight” black and white, color and the historic techniques of the pictorial school.

Now through May 31.

Looking Down by Kathleen Nademus

Looking Down, Kathleen Nademus

We all know the beauty of a snow covered landscape but capturing it on film is a wonderful challenge that Kathleen Nademus takes up with great enthusiasm.

This white magical scene creates a peacefulness, a quietness as no other season does. It is extremely beautiful. Shadows dance on the white blanket left behind. The landscape softens in a snowstorm becoming ethereal. This gift is only with us for a short time. So my hope is for people to stop and look at my images with a bit of wonder and amazement.

Now through April 30th

Our friend Michael Benari has a new exhibition to kick off the new year.

Benari uses the urban landscape to create his own visual language, and in the process, make work not familiar or necessarily embraced. He aims to use visual elements in ways that surprise, and at times, provoke, so as to invite the viewer into new emotional realms. His work seeks not to make you happy or sad, but rather to question what we assume to know. His use of abstraction further challenges our understanding of what defines photography today.

RECEPTION: January 18, 2018, 6 – 9pm RSVP

ARTIST TALK: Thursday, February 1st 2018,  5pm – 7pm

Exhibition: January 04 – February 25, 2018

Rorschach Girls by Mary Anne Mitchell

Rorchach Girls, Mary Anne Mitchell

Inspired by poetry, the images in this exhibition draw the viewer in to another world experience.

This series is inspired by my poem ‘Meet Me in My Dreams”.  The images are created using wet plate collodion. I scan and enlarge them to enhance the organic qualities of the medium. The work speaks to family, memory, and the ethereal passage of time.

The setting for many of the images is a fairytale landscape. My use of the young people celebrates the  universal feeling of limitless potential that most people experience in their youth.The ghostlike figures are reflections of the later years when beauty and youth begin to fade.  They suggest the feeling that one is beginning to disappear and yet still present and interacting in the scene.

Now through October 31.

Dunescape 04 by Matthew McIver

Dunescape 4, Matthew McIver

Dunescapes have a proud tradition in fine art photography. The beauty of a Weston print meanders through time to the inspired work of Matthew McIver.

You find silence in a desert. You find conversation in a crowd. A gathering is a place for distraction. A desert is a place without expectations.

Preview: Manhattan Sunday, Richard Renaldi, Aperture Bookstore, NYC, NY

Richard-Renaldi

5:14, Richard Renaldi

New York has been paid homage in a thousand and one forms, but pictures have always shown its truth. Richard Renaldi Manhattan Sunday is the latest example.

Featuring photographs taken in Manhattan between midnight on Saturday and noon on Sunday, Manhattan Sunday is an homage to New York’s nightlife and a celebration of New York as palimpsest onto which millions of people project their ideal and imaginary lives. Richard Renaldi’s visual observations are rooted in the home he found himself, in “the mystery and abandonment of the club, the nightscape, and then finally daybreak, each offering a transformation of Manhattan from the known world into a dreamscape of characters acting out their fantasies on a grand stage.”

Richard Renaldi (born in Chicago, 1968) graduated from New York University with a BFA in photography in 1990. Manhattan Sunday (Aperture, 2016) is the fourth body of Renaldi’s work published in book form, following Figure and Ground (Aperture, 2006), Fall River Boys (2009), and Touching Strangers (Aperture, 2014). In 2015, he was named a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow in Photography.

The gallery by the Aperture Foundation will be on exhibit at the Aperture bookstore on Friday. Opening reception will run from 6 to 8pm. For those who can’t make the reception, Renaldi’s photographs will be on view until July 27th.
