The Asian Series: Photographs by Phyllis Crowley

Exhibition Runs
: Monday, October 6th through November 7th, 2014
Artist Reception: Thursday, October 16th, 5pm – 7pm


The Asian Series: Photographs by Phyllis Crowley

High in the mountains of rural China the clouds descend, envelop the land and a photograph is made. The Asian Series quietly unfolds artist Phyllis Crowley‘s long-standing interest in interfaces that insert themselves between the subject and the viewer, obscuring and distorting, hiding and revealing. These dusky dirges denote an intimate connection to the landscape in moments of transformation. The photographs insinuate smudged outlines of memories, hinting as the familiar while remaining at times obscure. The glowing line movements in each frame liken themselves to jazz notes hanging heavy in the air, gorgeous streaks of light that enliven the soul.

Phyllis Crowley grew up in New York city, learning the love and craft of photography from her father. She references Minor White, Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind as serious influences on her work. She graduated from Vassar College, lives in New Haven CT, and has taught photography at Norwalk Community College, University of Bridgeport and the Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven.

Over the last 25 years, while making a living as a commercial freelance photographer, Phyllis’ art work has been widely exhibited in various galleries in New York City and extensively throughout New England as both solo and group artist.

 Meet the artist on Thursday, October 16th 5pm -7pm!

Show Runs June 16th – August 14th
at Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT

“Last year I was selected as one of 6 emerging artists to plan and mount an exhibition in the galleries of Real Art Ways, an alternative arts organization in Hartford.  The experience has been amazing so far, and I am incredibly excited about the new work that I am creating for the show!  I will have an entire gallery to install my large scale silver gelatin murals and the accompanying sound piece, and the show will be up most of the summer.  The opening is a Thursday evening from 6-8pm and the other five artists selected will be debuting their work as well in the other galleries of Real Art Ways in conjunction with their Creative Cocktail Hour.  It should be an amazing time, and I’d love to see you if you can make the trek!”

Maine Interiors – Dreams of Home
Website: www.annieclaflin.com/photography/dreams-of-home/

I began making images of my family, our home and the surrounding landscape in Maine over a decade ago. My interior photographs often abstract space, using lines, shapes and light patterns to define the composition. This body of work is motivated by dreams I have about home while I am away. In these dreams, I see only small details of my family’s home, but even the tiniest view of a specific texture or form evokes familiarity and comfort.

These images are dear to me not only because they remind me of home, but also because this home is threatened by erosion of the beach that tenuously supports it. Over the past thirty years, the ocean has crept closer and closer to the home I’ve known all my life. At high tide, waves now lap at the rock wall protecting our house from the sea. At some unknown future date, the pictures I have made of my family’s home will be all I have to remember it. I dream about these interiors moments before a wave floods their surfaces.

Visual Reportage workshops are coordinated by full-time New England School of Photography instructors Michael Hintlian, Documentary, and Glen Cooper, Visual Journalism.

“Beginning in 2007 our workshop mission grew from a belief that the best of our work is an instrument for change, that images have the power to give voice to the voiceless and more. Since our first workshop, widely diverse groups of accomplished photographers have traveled to Guatemala and India where they have worked stories and grew as photographers and as people.

We are excited to present this exhibit from 20 photographers who are committed to making a difference through their work.”
