Domenico Foschi: Tarnished Promises

Exhibit Dates: 
Thursday, Aug. 6 to Saturday, Sep. 5

 

Domenico Foschi’s images in Tarnished Promises reflect both combined intent and chance. Foschi started Tarnished Promises as a need to express emotions that were tied to his childhood, a time in life when possibilities are infinite, and the world is an exciting playground full of promise. Once trauma entered Foschi’s young life, however, his outlook on the world became stained. Modern science informs us that trauma physically changes pathways in the brain with lasting consequences that can reshape perspective. Foschi’s images reveal what happens as the promise of a wondrous and rich life is tarnished. He wanted Tarnished Promises to be uncomplicated in form and content, as if a child had clicked the shutter of the camera. Simple compositions that give the objects photographed a kind of personification and/or anthropomorphism became an important component in the execution of his project. It was through an accident in the darkroom that Foschi discovered a way to convey feelings that he could not have expressed in any other way. In one of his darkroom sessions, while working on another project, he spilled potassium ferricyanide on one of his toned prints. Foschi was amazed to see how it changed the grays to reddish and rusty hues, displaying some caustic like effects on paper. It was this moment that gave way to the beginning of this project. It was time to tarnish his prints.

Bree Lamb: A House, A Home

Exhibit Dates: 
Thursday, Aug. 6 to Saturday, Sep. 5

 

"Trouble in Paradise," by Bree LambIn the series, A House, A Home, Bree Lamb isolates ubiquitous household objects as a way to investigate traditions of domestic American life. Lamb’s observations are rooted in her own personal indulgences, expectations, and questions, as well as how she sees herself existing within this larger system. Lamb is interested in revealing some of the complex layers of this shared cultural vernacular through pairing the familiar with the unexpected and creating anticipation that is never quite resolved. The interventions and commercial style of capture re-contextualize the objects as a way to challenge traditional domesticity, to pose questions about social conventions, expectations and stereotypes, and to highlight consumption and convenience as staples of American popular culture.

John Sikita: About Trees

Exhibit Dates: 
Thursday, Aug. 6 to Saturday, Sep. 5

 

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.” Many have tried but, few can put it better than William Blake. John Sikita’s love affair with trees began like most, as a child. There wasn’t a tree not climbed within his neighborhood, and there was always some kind of construction going on high up amongst the branches, leaves, and squirrels. It wasn’t until he got his first look at a Sequoia though, that he really understood that trees are to be celebrated, not conquered. And this is when he first trained his lens on them. John finds that minimalist compositions suit him best giving order to what sometimes, can be construed as utter chaos. “That, coupled with changes in seasons, and or weather can really transform Mother Nature into a work of art,” says John.
