Michael Eastman: Southern light - photographs from Buenos Aires
Ethan Meyer: Descending Into Matter
MAY 25TH - JULY 7TH
Opening Reception Friday, MAY 25TH 5-8 pm.

Michael Eastman has established himself as one of the world’s leading contemporary photographic artists. The self-taught photographer is most recognized for his explorations of architectural form and the textures of decay, producing large-scale photographs unified by their visual precision, monumentality, and painterly use of color. Most recently, Eastman traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina to capture some of the city’s most iconic interiors; the result of ambitious and extravagant architectural projects to boast its wealth during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. “[His] photographs present a complex tableaux of Buenos Aires’ vibrant history, juxtaposing the splendor of a bygone golden age with present-day realities.”

Ethan Meyer’s work is an obsession with densely intricate patterns that map the inner landscapes of consciousness. As the viewer attempts to chart the patterns, the overall effect is of a space that is both rhythmic and organic. Using markings that are frenetic and spatially dense, Meyer is able to create a web of color that is both transient and hypnotic. Exploring these “landscapes” becomes a visionary and thought provoking experience that plays with surface and organic overtones.
