KLOMPCHING GALLERY is pleased to announce Splash II, a group exhibition of contemporary fine art photographs, by artists represented by the Klompching Gallery.

Since the launch of the gallery in 2007, our artists have been making quite a splash! Their artworks have been reviewed or featured in several notable print publications, several have had monographs published and artworks have been acquired by significant public museums. To celebrate their successes, we are taking this opportunity to re-present a selection of photographs that featured in our recent program of exhibitions, as well as introduce the work of a newly signed photographer.

Featured in the exhibition will be a selection of photographs from Sarah Lynch’s exquisite still life series, currently featured in the final issue of Portfolio Catalogue. Doug Keyes’s Becoming Language and Collective Memory were shown in January 2010 and attracted a good deal of attention, including private commissions. Phillip Toledano, whose A New Kind Of Beauty photographs created quite a storm, is now in pre-production with a monograph on this extraordinary body of work. With two solo exhibitions already presented at the gallery, Helen Sear has gone on to be awarded a Creative Wales Award and is currently working on a monograph and retrospective exhibition, scheduled for Fall 2012. Upcoming artist, Odette England was recently awarded the Hotshoe Photofusion Award and is represented in the exhibition with two artworks from her Attentional Landscapes series. Cornelia Hediger, who made her debut at the gallery with her series, Doppelgänger, in September 2008, is in production with new work that is scheduled to be launched in Fall 2011. Introduced for the first time, at Klompching Gallery, is the work of Cara Barer, with her impressive photographs of books reconfigured into sculptural forms.

In the back room, we are featuring Lisa M. Robinson, with photographs from her highly acclaimed Snowbound series. Robinson’s new body of work, Oceana, will be premiered at the gallery in April 2011.
