DESCRIPTION

Schneider Gallery is pleased to present recent works by Christian Weber and S. Gayle Stevens. These artists have embraced the transformative power of photography through process and subject matter. Weber, with his high speed photographs of fireballs, employs the latest in photographic technology to capture movement too fast for the human eye. Conversely, S. Gayle Stevens creates her imagery through a mixture of chemicals onto a photographic plate; the final pieces depict the world around her but are distorted by time and process.

S. Gayle Stevens has been working with 19th century processes for over two decades. In her latest work, Nocturnes, she abstracts the landscape along with coast dwelling creatures through painting chemicals onto metal plates. Like Weber, her work also speaks the language of time. However, with Stevens, time is elongated -- drawn out -- and collapsed onto a single plate. She operates somewhere between photographer and painter as brushstroke patterns emerge in tandem with her photographic images, creating an atmospheric, day-for-night depiction of the ocean and the local inhabitants.
