Amy Theiss Giese: Concealed at first at last I appear

New work is up in the gallery!

This week opened Amy Theiss Giese’s exhibition of new site specific work.  Giese uses a unique process of directly recording light onto black and white photographic paper to make large scale installation environments.  The opening was Wednesday evening, and she will be giving an artist talk next Thursday, Dec 8th at 6pm in the gallery.  Here are some detail views of the work:

 

 

Gallery Director, Erin Carey writes:

Amy Theiss Giese’s skiagrams (shadow drawings) investigate how the most basic photographic method, light recorded onto paper, can reveal overlooked interior moments. Embedded in each drawing is an abstracted compression of an experience: The weather, the hand of the artist and the interior space of the room itself. Reminencent of Fox Talbot’s initial photographic explorations, these singular images compel vital questions.

About the Artist: Giese recently completed an M.F.A in photography from Parson School of Design with honors in 2009. She received her B.A. from Amherst College, majoring in Fine Arts, and is also a graduate of The New England School of Photography. Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions both nationally and internationally including the Photographic Resource Center in Boston, the Visual Arts Center of NJ, Arnold & Sheila Aronson Gallery in NYC, the Sydney College of the Arts galleries and Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT.

In this body of work, Brian Vanden Brink examines rural, industrial, post-industrial, and abandoned architecture and its relationship to the landscape. There he discovers a fascinating world of shapes, textures, spatial relationships and history:  “I love to photograph how and where we live, seeing in our architecture an expression of what we value.”

This Russia

This Russia

Irina Rozovsky

April 18, 2011 – June 3, 2011

Reception: April 20, 2011, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

In the summer of 2008, Irina returned to Russia for the first time since she and her family left exactly twenty years before. To Irina, Moscow was wrapped in a haze that rose like a mirage. These photographs describe a place both real and imagined by years of absence and the disorientation of being a stranger in a familiar land.  These images look for what has been left behind and disconnected—This Russia—its crumbling buildings, searching faces—its fairytale drenched in redeeming, yellow light, nostalgia tinged with harsh reality.

About the Artist: Irina Rozovsky (b. 1981, Moscow) immigrated to the United in 1988.  She received a BA in French and Spanish Literature from Tufts University and an MFA in Photography from Massachusetts College of Art.  Her works has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most notably at the New York Photo Festival (2008), Rencontres at Arles, France (2009), 31 Women in Photography curated by Charlotte Cotton (2010), PhotoEspana (2010), Exposure at the Photographic Resource Center (2010), and at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts (2010).  She was the 2009 finalist of the Massachusetts Cultural Council Grant and the 2010 finalist of the Magnum Expression Award.  Her first monograph One to Nothing was recently published by Kehrer Verlag (2011).  Irina teaches photography at Art Institute of Boston and at the International Center of Photography, New York.

An Invisible Wall

 

Windows in the Wall: Photographs by Rebecca Heyl

January 10, 2011 – February 25, 2011

Opening Reception:

January 19, 2011 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Windows in the Wall is a selection of photographs from the 2008 monograph (Skira/Rizzoli) of the same title. The project is about the wall that separates Palestinians and Israelis. When Rebecca Heyl began photographing this new barrier, in December 2002, little was known about the construction, either within the Israeli public or abroad. Only the Palestinians whose land had been confiscated understood its importance. Now, eight years later, 400 plus miles of electronic fencing combined with 5-8 meter (16-25ft.) high concrete wall slabs make up this Barrier. Although it is still not complete, the Barrier has affected the life of every Palestinian, separating them from loved ones, schools, land, markets, universities, jobs and medical services. Not only has the Barrier affected contact among Palestinians, it also has made the already difficult contact between Palestinians and Israelis nearly impossible.

This new enormous physical barrier between the Palestinian and Israeli peoples has made the other, older, wall that separates them all the more apparent – the invisible wall of fear, distrust, and paranoia. This is the wall that is the subject of Heyl’s photographic work. This is the wall that fascinates her — this wall, and the courageous people on both sides who continue to penetrate the barriers between them.

Rebecca Heyl is an artist, educator and human rights activist currently based in Boston. She has a Masters of Fine Art from the joint program at Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. While living in Israel between 2001 and 2004 Heyl worked with Windows – Channels for Communication, an Israeli-Palestinian non-profit organization. She traveled frequently between the West Bank and Israel coming to know many on both sides of this continuing conflict. Heyl’s recently published photographic monograph titled Windows in the Wall (Skira/Rizzoli, 2008) embodies her experience in Israel and the West Bank as a human rights worker.

Heyl teaches Photography at Chester College of New England, located in Chester, NH.

Summer Light for the Winter

Simmer Dim:  The Endless Twilight of Scottish Summer
Photographs by Lance Keimig
November 29th, 2010 – January 7, 2011
Opening Reception: December 1st,  6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Lecture and Book Signing: December 8th,  6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Despite the upcoming dark winter days,  Lance Keimig’s photography exhibit, Simmer Dim: The Endless Twilight of Scottish Summer, prolongs feelings of the midsummer nights.  The photographs in this exhibit are taken during the long twilight hours from about 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Scotland’s northern archipelagos of Orkney and Shetland. It never quite gets fully dark here at midsummer, and the sky glows with a magical light that the locals call “Simmer Dim”. The faint glow in the sky balances perfectly with the street lights of the towns like Stromness, Kirwall and Lerwick, and Keimig’s quiet studies of their architecture and narrow streets create a sense of anticipation. Away from the towns and streetlights, Keimig often supplements the natural light of the landscape with a technique called light painting.  

Lance Keimig is a Pembroke, Massachusetts based photographer who is best known for night photography of the built environment. His book, Night Photography- Finding Your Way In The Dark was published by Focal Press in August of 2010. Keimig is the curator of Darkness, Darkness, a traveling exhibit of Night Photography and of the Three Columns Gallery at Harvard University.  For more information about Lance Keimig’s photography, visit his website at www.thenightskye.com

Over one weekend in April each year, New England School of Photography offers an architectural photography shooting expedition in New York City. Accessible and vibrant, NYC is home to some of the most stunning and varied architecture in the United States. From early Gothic revival landscape to high-rise skyscrapers, NYC offers limitless shooting opportunities for the emerging and professional architectural photographer. On April 16th, 2010, Keitaro Yoshioka, his teaching assistant Ben Gebo and 5 NESOP professional photography program students, Ray Conway, Philipp Lehman, Rebecca MacPherson, Chelsey Rosengrant and Morgan Ione Yeager arrived in New York City to begin their weekend intensive expedition. These photographers scoured and climbed numerous stairs up rooftops to capture the distinct view, examined various restaurants with their lens to find that prefect shot, and were able to find the quirkiness in the heart of the busy city. The photographs from this trip will be on display in the New York City Architecture Exhibition from August 16th, 2010 – October 1st, 2010 at the Garner Center for Photographic Exhibitions.
