Gallery artist Nathan Green is curating a group exhibition--A Flexible Arrangement--at Gray Matters Gallery, featuring works by Sterling Allen, Kalee Appleton, Josh Rios, Barry Stone, Kevin Todora, and Casey James Wilson. The show opens Saturday, March 28, 6-9 PM and runs through April 26. Says Green of the exhibition:
Close to a trillion photographs will be taken in 2015. The proliferation of the image within our ever-connected society has undoubtedly impacted our perception of reality, as well as reality itself. We consume hundreds, if not thousands of images on a daily basis searching for truths, fully knowing that the photographic image can lie. The act of photographing is fraught with subjectivity and the photograph itself is not an accurate depiction of things as they actually exist- the camera changes everything. Now more than ever before, we are aware of the ways that a photograph can exaggerate, mask, and distort reality. The artists in "A Flexible Arrangement" celebrate the distortions. They explore the possibilities of the medium, as well as the failures, slippages, and fractures in photographic representation by physically or digitally manipulating the image, re-photographing it, or making it into sculptural form. A Flexible Arrangement embraces the endless possibilities of manipulating the photographic image.
