“Crossroads” at the Silvermine Guild gallery

I am excited to announce that one of my photographs has been selected to be part of a group exhibition at the Silvermine Art Center. The title of the show is “Crossroads.” Here is an except from the prospectus for the show: “As a metaphor, ” to be at a crossroads,” refers to any turning point with an unpredictable outcome (the literal meaning of a crisis).”
The photograph of mine that is in the show is entitled “Caos” 2010 and is part of an ongoing project titled “Balance.”
With the world’s attention on the human impact on the earth, is it not relevant to directly include the human form in contemporary landscape photography? If the earth’s ultimate survival now relies on human intervention to prevent it from becoming a lifeless world, shouldn’t today’s artist reflect that thought? This image is part of a series that attempts to answer these questions. We are now at a “Crossroads or a tipping point, were if we do not begin to change what we are doing, their may be no turning back. This photograph represents this point. How much energy does it take to move, keep warm or simply to communicate?
Dr. Tracy Fitzpatrick was invited to be the guest juror for this show. She is a curator at the Neuberger Museum of Art and an assistant professor in art history in the undergraduate program and the Masters Degree Program in Modern and Contemporary Art, Criticism and Theory at Purchase College.
The opening reception is Sunday July 31, 2011 from 2pm to 4pm at the Silvermine Guild Gallery.
I hope to see you there!
