photo-eye Gallery is honored to announce Rendezvous with Light an exhibition of photographs by represented artists David H. Gibson and Chaco Terada. The two-person-show will feature over 35 works including dual layer silk prints by Chaco Terada as well as silver gelatin prints, pigment ink prints, and handmade artist books by David H. Gibson.

Rendezvous with Light is an exhibition that juxtaposes the work of Dallas based photographic artists David H. Gibson and Chaco Terada. While the artists maintain separate practices, they often work closely together, sometimes even photographing in the same locations, and images in Rendezvous with Light share similar natural themes. The exhibition addresses notions of light, time, space, and origin while possessing meditative, poetic, and otherworldly qualities. Gibson and Terada each express these ideas in a unique fashion.

A master of subtlety, David Gibson loves to examine how light and atmosphere transform an environment over time. For decades, Gibson has created time sequences, a series of images where he returns to the same locations to photograph a single setting over a small period when the rapid environmental change is taking place minutes — typically near a body of water at sunrise. The mood, tone, and sense of space within the scene varies widely between images that are made within minutes of each other. Gibson’s time sequences take the form of wall scrolls, handmade artist books, and are occasionally broken out into individual prints. Overall, Gibson’s landscapes exude notions of quiet vastness, minimalistic composition, and rhythmic mark-making while maintaining a unique and specific description for a particular location.

Terada’s photographs utilize multiple layers of opaque silk and occasionally incorporate calligraphic brushstrokes using traditional Japanese inks. Her prints literally hold light and space within the picture. Quiet and contemplative, the image changes ever so slightly as you move around it, reacting in space and allowing the zen imagery to fall and flutter as if in air or on water. The visual experience is captivating, speaks to transient states, and gives rise to meditative moments. Though Terada draws inspiration from traditional Japanese culture and calligraphy the final result is a modern and personal approach. Due to Terada’s process, all of her works in this exhibition are one of a kind.

Ernie Button: Planet Whiskey from the Universe of Vanishing Spirits: The Dried Remains of Single Malt Scotch

Ernie Button's work has always possessed a sense of whimsy but his new entry in his acclaimed Vanishing Spirits series literally transforms the Everyday into something otherworldly. In Planet Whiskey, Button displays the dried remnants of single malt scotch as a floating sphere against a rich plane of black. Combined with the artist's signature lighting technique, the images appear to display fantastic gas giants or cratered moons light years in the distance. Vanishing Spirits has been featured in The New York Times, The Smithsonian, Scientific American, and spurred fluid dynamics research at Princeton University.

Karl Blossfeldt Karl Blossfeldt
The Architecture of Plants
July 31st - September 30th, 2017

photo-eye Bookstore Project Space is pleased to feature Karl Blossfeldt: The Architecture of Plants, an exhibition featuring twenty exquisite black-and-white photogravure plates from Blossfeldt’s seminal monographs Urformen der Kunst and Wundergarten der Natur. Karl Blossfeldt insisted that ’the plant must be valued as a totally artistic and architectural structure,’ and his iconic monographs are a testament to that belief. A pioneer in the field of macro-photography, Blossfeldt often constructed his own cameras allowing him to magnify his subject 30x to craft compositions infused with abstract shape, transforming ordinary buds, pods, and twigs into exotic specimens with rhythmic form.
