photo-eye Gallery, 541 S. Guadalupe Street, Santa Fe, NM


photo-eye is excited to announce concurrent exhibitions by renowned photographers Keith Carter and Kate Breakey. These exhibitions will feature new work by Carter and Breakey as well as selections from established projects. Over 150 images are in the show including Mr. Carter's tintypes and Ms. Breakey's Gold-leaf prints.

Golden Stardust, new work for Breakey, is an intriguing investigation into the use of gold as a material, and its meaning, throughout history. Here, 24 karat leaf is applied to common scenes and items – such as a nude, a piece of fruit, or a flock of birds – the addition of gold creates an unfamiliar experience touched by the surreal.

Ghostland by Keith Carter is, according to the artist, “an exploration of the flora, fauna, and folklore of the swamplands in the American South.” For more than 30 years Carter has used traditional photographic materials to cultivate an extended portrait of the Southern identity. Far from straight documentary, Carter’s tintypes echo with notes of religion, mythology, and whimsy.

Bob Cornelis:
Carta I and Carta II.

photo-eye is pleased to announce two new portfolios by photographer Bob Cornelis — Carta I and Carta II. These black and white palladium prints are an intriguing blend of 19th, 20th, and 21st Century photographic practice and philosophy, as Cornelis combines digital capture with palladium salts to build an image. Focused on form and invested in abstraction, Cornelis depicts paper as both vast and rolling fully tonal environments in Carta I and glowing angular marks that divide the picture plane in Carta II.

Divided into three distinct segments, photo-eye is focusing on Part III: Care in this initial portfolio release and exhibition.

Thomas Jackson:
Emergent Behavior

photo-eye is excited to welcome Thomas Jackson and his large scale color series Emergent Behavior to the Photographer's Showcase. In this series man-made objects assemble in powerful masses, taking on a life of their own as they co-exist with nature. To make these images, Jackson first imagines the composition and then constructs large suspended kinetic sculptures from colorful everyday objects, which are photographed, finally resulting in a still image. According to Jackson, these hovering installations take reference from "emergent" natural systems such as termite mounds, swarming locusts, or schooling fish in order to evoke both the fear and fascination prompted by such phenomena.

Angela Bacon-Kidwell:
Home by Nightfall

photo-eye Gallery is pleased to exhibit Photographer's Showcase artist Angela Bacon-Kidwell titled Home by Nightfall. Bacon-Kidwell photographs a lone road surrounded by stretches of a seemingly infinite smokey landscape bathed in gausy light. Ultimately speaking of transition and journey, a young boy, the series' only character, grapples with the environment — simultaneously resisting and embracing its cold and tumultuous demeanor. Almost narrative at times, Bacon-Kidwell plants us firmly at the road's center, lending a sensation of infinite space, and leaving the viewer to decide whether each scene describes past events or future obstacles. Combined with images of the road, dust, and stars Kidwell paints a powerful symbolic portrait of loss, grief, and ultimately acceptance.

Vanessa Marsh:
Everywhere All at Once

photo-eye Gallery is please to announce Everywhere All at Once, a portfolio by Vanessa Marsh, new to the Photographer's Showcase. Everywhere All at Once is a series of black-and-white, cameraless images examining the sublime while comparing natural and manmade power. Paradoxically both peaceful and eerie, Everywhere All at Once depicts an enigmatic abandoned landscape whipped by wind, and bathed in starlight.
