Meshes

Meshes will be on exhibit at the Geoffrey Young Gallery, from December 22, 2018 through January 27, 2019, with the opening reception on Saturday, December 22 from 6-9 pm. Meshes is a group show featuring artists John Clarke, Karen Dolmanisth, Dana Piazza, and Sara Wallach. The overlapping qualities in their works are use of line, and blurring the boundaries between figurative and abstract. This show explores the points of connection between these works. 

John Clarke uses long exposure, reflections, and visual disturbances to create photography that is most like impressionist painting. His work combines the figurative world with the abstract to create a kind of visual poetry. 

Karen Dolmanisth is a multi-media artist whose work incorporates site-specific sculptures created from found objects energized with a non-representational poetic visual language. Her inspirations include the work of John Cage, cave paintings and early human pictograms, the healing properties and interconnections experienced at water sites, mandalas, and contemporary performance art history, theory, and practice from the fifties, sixties, and seventies.

Dana Piazza’s drawing process is methodical, approaching each piece like a repetitive exercise. He allows human error to inform how the piece changes as it grows, making the work both engineered and spontaneous. 

Sara Wallach makes photographs of abandoned or decaying items, and often abstracts them within the frame. Her approach is to transform them through photography and give them a new purpose.

The rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation... an organic coordination of visual elements. – Henri Cartier-Bresson

The term composition means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole - often adhering to compositional principles that make a work of photographic art more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of rhythm, movement, contrast, balance, unity, proximity and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual, social, or political concepts.                                                 

Praxis Gallery presents works of art that explore composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives.

interview with loosenart

"Rich" and “articulated” can be two of the most fitting adjectives describing Sara Wallach’s professional and artistic path. Photographer and editor, she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Photography at Bard College, in the U.S. Then she moved to Eastern Europe and London, where she studied Sociology at Goldsmiths, finally heading back to Massachusetts.
Coming from a family of artists and being interested in photography since when she was young, Sara has acquired familiarity and intimacy with this medium. Looking at her pictures, that is quite easy to see and understand: centred on a main detail, they play around with contrasts – a part representing a whole (a synecdoche), light and shadow, new and old…
The astonishment, in the end, is raised by the unexpected and surprising meaning hidden behind every object, every human framed and then shown. Memories, emotions, curiosity are obviously part of the process. [Click image for the full interview]
