Lexington Avenue, Passaic, NJ, George Tice, 1973

George Tice has long had a love affair with his home state of New Jersey and the Americana of its urban sprawl. Joseph Bellows takes the public back to the 70s to explore one of Tice’s earlier periods.

The exhibition will present a remarkable selection of forty exceptionally rare vintage 8 x 10 inch gelatin silver contact prints from the early period (1973-74), of Tice’s ongoing epic visual poem of his native state of New Jersey. These unique vintage prints will be punctuated with larger photographs of some of artist’s most revered and significant images, as well as selections of more recent work from his extended New Jersey portrait.

Renowned for their attentive and quotidian descriptions of the everyday structures and places that define the American cultural landscape, Tice’s exquisitely printed photographs catalog a rich and layered journey that is both personal and universal. In the photographs that comprise Urban Landscapes, Tice defines a sense of America within a tradition rooted in the work of other American masters, namely Edward Hopper and Walker Evans. Tice’s photographs of New Jersey in the early to mid 1970’s describe a particular time and place; however, as the artist states, “It takes the passage of time before an image of a commonplace subject can be assessed. The great difficulty of what I attempt is seeing beyond the moment; the
everydayness of life gets in the way of the eternal”. Now, with decades past, Tice’s observations have become even more poignant depictions, everlasting a specific era and landscape, as the artist intended.

The exhibit will open September 10th, featuring George Tice at the opening reception from 6-8pm. Visitors can continue to view until October 28th, 2016.

The Scott Nichols Gallery is hosting a 60 year retrospective: George Tice: The Photographer’s Photographer to celebrate tice’s many achievements and contributions to fine art photography as an artist, teacher, and technical master.

Renowned for his technical printmaking skills, Tice began working for names in the fine art photography field such as Edward Weston, Frederick H. Evans and Edward Steichen while promoting his own portrait photography. His skillfully executed images of American rural and suburban life earned him national and international acclaim. Despite his lack of classical training, his images are sophisticated in both aesthetics and technical quality.
