Exhibition : « Under the arc of the Sky » by Caleb CharlandPress release :
Caleb Charland's new exhibit, Under the Arc of the Sky, combines science, photography, art, and a sophisticated curiosity creating images which are both magical and surreal - illusions that make us question what we are seeing. Visually striking, the resulting pieces reveal the artist's exploration of light, motion, movement, gravity, the push and pull of Earth's forces that are experienced every day.
Charland's pieces are made with and without a camera. They are gelatin silver photographs made in the darkroom or cyanotype prints made in the light. Photograms, long exposures, paper negatives, glow in the dark powder are some of the techniques used, each demonstrating Charland's inexhaustible sense of wonder and childlike exuberance for discovery.

Caleb Charland s'appuie sur une solide connaissance de la physique-chimie et d...

The woods commonly serve as metaphor for many things—including that which is mysterious, perhaps frightening, or simply unfamiliar. The forest marks the edge of mankind’s domain, and for centuries poets, composers, painters, and artists of all media have been inspired by what at first may seem outwardly calm and tranquil, but firmly delineates what should be the boundary of man’s authority.
In recent years a number of emerging...
« Second Nature : Abstract Photography Then and Now » s'expose au DeCordova Museum
« It is another nature which speaks to the camera rather than to the eye » Walter Benjamin, Little History of Photography (1931)
Abstract photography challenges our popular view of photography as an objective image of reality by reasserting its constructed nature. In Walter Benjamin’s essay on the history of photography, the philosopher and critical theorist articulates photography’s « second nature » as its inherent ability to detach and abstract the visible from the real. Non-representational photography lives in this contested middle ground between material reality and photographic illusion—fact and fiction—first and second natures. Today, anyone who has a cell phone can take and send digital pictures instantaneously. In response to this snapshot culture, many art...
