KLOMPCHING GALLERY is pleased to announce FRESH 2013, the gallery's annual summer exhibition, showcasing new voices in contemporary photography.
There will be an Opening Reception on Thursday, July 18, 6pm to 8pm.
FRESH 2013 is co-curated by the distinguished collector/curator W.M. Huntand Klompching Gallery owner Darren Ching. Together, they have selected the work of five exciting new photographers, from an international open call for submissions.
Manuel Cosentino’s Behind a Little House is an exploration of how photographs are presented, interacted with and consumed. Eight modest, sequenced photographs, lead the viewer from a position of spectator to that of participant.
With his Mountain series, Peter Croteau brings order to spaces of waste that result from urban sprawl. With these large-scale color photographs, the artist touches upon the way people shape land and its use, as well as the ideologies that define the way we understand natural forms.
Photographs of boys in dresses, by Maxine Helfman, appear to be uncomplicated–almost whimsical–studio portraits. However, they bring to our attention the double meanings that emerge from something as simple as a piece of clothing.
Priya Kambli re-works black and white historical family snapshots, that have been previously altered, through perceptively violent incisions. Inspired by the aesthetics of those physical marks, her own alterations are intended as modifications of their original narrative.
The subconscious state in the formation of certain memories, forms the subject of Chang Kyun Kim’s unique artworks, consisting of photographic fragments adhered to canvas. He questions the individuality of memory and whether it could, in fact, be collective.
FRESH 2013 expands across the wall, the page and the internet—by showcasing the five photographers in the following ways:
