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.
