In Association with Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA), Bleicher/Golightly and Blue Five Gallery, are pleased to present “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, while pushing the genre into more subjective, conceptual and expressive territory.
“Scapes” is a unique dialogue of photography and painting that reconciles contemporary and traditional aesthetics. Many of the photographers employ approaches more common to painters, as can be seen in the mist of colors drifting over Jeff Alu’s haunting barren scenes. In contrast painters Danielle Eubank and Michelle Nielsen capture frozen moments in an environment more common to photography. David Skinner will for the first time combine elements of his sought after rural California scenes with his introspective personal series.
A comparison of photography and painting, the traditional and contemporary, the subject and the environment, “Scapes” promises to be both appealing and controversial to lovers and followers of each genre. The exhibit will take part across two galleries and a separate reception and events will be held at each gallery. See bgartdealings.com
