ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Liz Deschenes - Walker Art Center - November 22nd - November 22nd, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">Since the early 1990s, Liz Deschenes has produced a singular and influential body of work that has done much to advance photography&rsquo;s material potential and critical scope. Making use of the medium&rsquo;s most elemental aspects, namely paper, light, and chemicals, she has recently worked without a camera to produce mirrored photograms that reflect viewers&rsquo; movements in time and space. Her carefully calibrated installations of these pieces have probed disparate histories of image production, abstraction, and exhibition-making while also responding to a given site&rsquo;s unique&nbsp;features.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For this yearlong exhibition&mdash;the artist&rsquo;s first solo presentation at an American museum&mdash;Deschenes will produce a new body of work, reconfiguring the space of the Walker&rsquo;s seventh-floor gallery with a photographic&nbsp;intervention.</p> Fri, 31 Oct 2014 06:54:58 +0000 Roger Mudre - Heather Gaudio Fine Art - October 25th - November 29th <p><strong>Heather Gaudio Fine Art</strong> is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition <em>Roger Mudre: Full Circle, </em>on view from October 25 through November 29.&nbsp; This is Mudre&rsquo;s first solo exhibition at HGFA and will feature his paintings and works on paper.&nbsp; The public is invited to attend an opening reception for the artist to be held on Saturday, October 25<sup>th,</sup> from 1 to 4pm.</p> <p>Mudre&rsquo;s work explores the concept of infinity as it relates to the continuum in our every day life, from microcosms in cellular growth to grander celestial bodies that fill the universe.&nbsp; Whether seen or invisible to the naked eye, these forms inspire Mudre&rsquo;s imagination and he contains them in a square shape to suggest an equal perpetuity in all dimensions.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Applying metallic leaf to a prepared surface, Mudre layers his work with color glazes, adding and removing layers with brush, rags or scrapers to create aureoles, coils, halos and other similar forms, achieving a depth in tonality.&nbsp;&nbsp; The effects are beautifully luminous works that offer contemplative respites for the viewer.&nbsp;&nbsp; Although abstract in composition, these forms are grounded in familiar imagery found in nature, rendering an inspiring reference point to the imagination.</p> Wed, 29 Oct 2014 02:58:47 +0000
