Jackson Fine Art Gallery says
Jackson Fine Art is pleased to announce our spring line-up of exhibitions from contemporary photographers Christopher Bucklow and Liu Bolin, two artists whose unique approaches to portraiture interrogate the relationship between subjects and their surroundings. Bucklow’s photogram silhouettes, made by recreating a model’s outline with thousands of tiny pinholes and then exposing these to direct sunlight, result in ethereal depictions of bodies in negative space. For Bolin’s “camouflage” installations, the artist better known as “The Invisible Man” in media circles paints himself (and occasionally others) into vibrant backgrounds, dissecting the relationship between the individual and society by selecting sites of controversy or intrigue. Also on display in the viewing room will be a series of pinhole photographs by Willie Anne Wright, a new artist for Jackson Fine Art. Wright has been working since the seventies, largely in lensless pinhole and photogram photography, and a recent return to these earlier processes within photography at large has brought attention to this incredible body of work. Accompanied by a new book from Candela Press (April 2016), Direct Positive explores Wright’s innovative use of Cibachrome color material and her production of unique direct positive images. Strangely saturated color, visual distortion, and vibrant ideas gave rise to these beautiful and insistent objects. On the evening of Thursday, April 21, from 6-8 pm, we’lll hold our traditional opening reception with Christopher Bucklow and Willie Anne Wright in attendance. On Saturday, April 23 at 11am, Christopher Bucklow and Willie Anne Wright will give artist talks about their work, followed by questions.
