Concurrently, the gallery will present its third solo show of paintings by Santa Barbara-based artist, Pamela Kendall Schiffer. While Michael Light dizzily soars over the American West with large-format camera, Schiffer works at ground level, painting one of the most iconic, prodigiously painted and photographed manifestations of the sublime on earth, Yosemite Valley. In contrast to the drama and sheer force of Light’s photos, Schiffer’s reverential approach parallels the work of the Tonalist painters of the early 20th century who avoided majestic spectacle in favor of a more reductivist and intimate composition that evoked a poetic mood. As the artist states, “I structure my paintings in an ever simpler way. I try to pare down a scene to its essential qualities. I hope to make images that are fairly uncomplicated, while still imparting a sense of space, atmosphere and stillness, paying particular attention to the quality of light.”
