In the Main Gallery, April 6 – June 4, 2016
Edward Weston once wrote:
My work-purpose, my theme, can most clearly be stated as the recognition, recording and presentation of the interdependence, the relativity if all things – the universality of basic form . . . In a single day’s work within a radius of a mile, I might discover and record the skeleton of a bird, a blossoming fruit tree, a cloud, a smokestack; each of these being only a part of the whole, but each – in itself – becoming a symbol of the whole, of life.
This unequaled vision of photography resonates throughout Edward Weston’s work and that of his family who continue an artistic a legacy that remains vibrant today.
In the work of Brett Weston, we see a deep contemplation of form and through his classic sharp focused contrast we are witness to a master of abstraction.
In the photography of Kim Weston we see generations of photographic acumen and tradition and a versatile style which becomes adaptable and transcendent to every subject, nude and setting.
In the images of Zach Weston we are able to witness a new perspective in abstraction formed from the intuitive Weston ability to present a subtle story in profound ways which honor his family’s legacy yet looking intently to the future.
