DESCRIPTION

Bleicher/Golightly announces it's debut photographic exhibit "(Vignettes)", a collection of innovative contemporary photographers whose works evoke narrative intrigue. The exhibit focuses on enigmatic figurative works that lead to internal narratives similar to those found in memory, daydream, nostalgia and sleep.

Calethia deConto creates haunting ephemeral photographs that include mixed media elements such as sewing into the photograph. J. Wesley Brown creates compositions that place characters engaging in every day activities in a way that frames them as almost inanimate objects in a serene landscape. Sarah Small creates often controversial interactions between characters, juxtaposing extremes such as sensuality and conservatism,  youth and age, despair and joy, disease and health. Erin Wilson shoots on film, developing and printing work from her home giving her work a vintage feel, with characters styled from another time, often including herself as a model. Shannon Rowland shoots conceptualized portraiture exploreing identity and self reflection. Mike Saijo uses non-traditional printing methods to create his work,  printing an image directly onto the pages of a book or journal, page by page, then piecing the subject back together. Rebekah Boyle shoots fashion-influenced photography with ethereal fantasy elements.
