My work is going to be exhibited in New York next week at Fig. 19 Gallery, as part of a group show for a special and close-to-my-heart charity, The ReesSpecht Foundation.
I created these new images over the past couple of months, in working through some challenging life experiences. I was working with the name “Chiaro Scuro” – the old art-history term used to describe the use of strong contrast between light and dark. I not only applied this theme in the photography and lighting, but it was very representative of the subject matter. Exploring themes of duality, reflection, anger and helplessness, these are a few of the pieces of the ever-growing body of personal work.
I will be in attendance for the opening reception at 6:30pm, Thursday May 23rd at Fig. 19 Gallery in the Lower East Side of NY. 131 Chrystie St., NYC. The exhibit runs from May 23rd to June 6th. Hope to see you there!
