VERVE Gallery of Photography is pleased to present a three-person exhibition with VERVE Gallery artists SUSAN KAE GRANT, KAMIL VOJNAR and KRZYSZTOF WLADYKA. The public reception will be held on Friday, November 15, 2013, from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibition is on view through Saturday, January 11, 2014.
This exhibition at VERVE is a collection of photographs that dispels the belief that photography offers an accurate rendering of persons, places, things and events. The images by these three fine art photographers are created, constructed and choreographed by the artist to, at first blush, appear as accurate and objective renderings of what they portray. They summon the viewer to first comprehend them as an accurate rendition, only to then provoke the viewer to see them in a completely different light. Unmistakably aesthetic, this imagery of persons, places, things and events is to be seen and understood as metaphors–to tell a different story or stories. Sometimes the pictorial narrative is simple, direct and clear–easily ascertainable. Other images, on the other hand, are puzzling and invite numerous interpretations. In each instance, however, the image content is always inviting and the compositions have patterns, structure and narrative. The works are pleasin g to the eye.
