> DESCRIPTION

FotoObscura: Abstraction through Photography

Heart presents a selection of work that blurs the boundary between photography and abstract art. The photographers of FotoObscura move beyond traditional modes of photographic representation by manipulating images through a variety of techniques. Kirk Crippens and Adam Wier use perspective to achieve abstraction, while Keith Petersen and Julie Garner abstract their images digitally or manually during post-production. Klea McKenna's photograms negate the need for the traditional picture-taking device of the camera altogether. Whatever the process, the results beg one to consider the ever-evolving role of photography and the limitless possibilities of the medium.
