It will include photographic documentations of ‘body related actions’ and artists’ performances that were staged or produced as self-portraiture. Light sources become key elements in many of the works, ranging from available light within the artist’s own studio, to natural daylight utilized outdoors within the landscape, to artificial studio lighting. The final images may incorporate techniques such as photograms (produced without a camera) or pinhole camera photographs transforming figures within an architectural space.For more information or images, please contact Michael Solway at Michael@solwaygallery.com or 513-621-0069.
