Blue Five - Art Space
<< prev | next >>

Bleicher/Golightly in collaboration with Blue Five Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of "Scapes", a two gallery exhibit comparing contemporary photographs with contemporary paintings stemming from the landscape tradition. The exhibit features works that have strong roots in traditional landscape approaches but push the genre (to varying degrees) into more subjective, conceptual and expressive territory.

Scapes is a unique dialog of photography and painting and a reconciliation of contemporary and traditional aesthetic. Many of the photographers employ approaches more common to painters as can be seen in the churning mist of colors drifting over Jeff Alu's haunting barren scenes, while some painters such as Michelle Nielsen attempt to capture frozen moments in an environment more common to photographic approaches. David Skinner will for the first time combine elements of his sought after rural California scenes with his introspective personal series.

A comparison of the photography and painting, the traditional and contemporary, the subject and the environment, Scapes promises to be at the same time appealing and controversial to lovers to followers of each genre. The exhibit will take part across two galleries and a separate reception and events will be held at each gallery
