“The ability of photography to reveal what is invisible to the naked eye has a rich history dating back to the advent of the medium. Often typifying the conflation of science and art characterizing early photography, the pursuit of the invisible by means of light-sensitive emulsions remains a compelling source of fascination for contemporary image-makers and their audience. Within the realm of art, this preoccupation with the unseen manifests itself in remarkable fashions ranging from the poetics of evocation to the dread of the unknown.
Bringing together the intriguing work of seven international photo-based artists, Shadows of the Invisible casts light upon a spectrum of energy fields, emanations, perceptual imaginings, and subconscious imaging rendered tangible by photographic technologies.
The exhibition will be on view October 11 – November 23, 2014. Featuring: Michael Flomen, David Maisel, Marie-Jeanne Musiol, Susan kae Grant, Shimpei Takeda, Amy Theiss Giese and Chrysanne Stathacos.”
