Tah Gallery is very pleased to present Katina Desmond's series of photographs from nature entitled "Reflecting Presence" - an intriguing selection of hand-painted silver gelatin photographs and archival pigment prints. 

 Dedicated to elevating the beauty and spirit of the natural world to a new level of expression, Katina creates multi-dimensional, dream-like imagery. Her work is imbued with a synthesis of vibrant energy and emotive density - an amalgamation in which two or more distinct layers merge to form a unique effect. Each photograph is transformed masterfully, allowing the viewer to see the world in a new light. 

 Included in the show are colorfully painted photographs of poweful, enigmatic tree and nature scenes, along with compellingly meditative water ripple images digitally printed on dye infused aluminum surfaces, archival pigment prints, and multi media collage works.

 Celebrating the theme of MOPLA 2012 (Intersect: An Exploration of Innovation and Technology in Contemporary Photography), Desmond's work bridges traditional and somewhat forgotten photographic methods with current modes in photographic technoglogy.

 Katina Desmond is an award winning artist with works included in numerous public, private, national and international collections. She is a founding member of 4260 Black & White Photographers Guild, a board member of Pasadena Society of Artists, and a member of Los Angeles Art Association.  She currently works and resides in Pasadena, California.

Exhibition will run through Sunday, April 29, 2012. 

 Gallery hours: Daily - noon to 5 p.m.
