Helen Sear Exhibit @ Klompching Gallery in DUMBO


(click on image for larger version)

Helen Sear — Inside the View
Opening Reception tonight, January 8, 6pm–8pm
Klompching Gallery | 111 Front Street, Suite 206, DUMBO | FREE
(Exhibit runs through February 27)


From the gallery's website:
"Inside The View is an exceptional collection of photographs, wherein Helen Sear addresses the notion of work, labor of the hand and time in the process of image making. Sear also contributes to the long history of montage by superimposing two images — one a portrait of a woman and the other a landscape. Each image is then erased through a complex and painstaking process of digital drawing, with a lace-like network of lines based upon the patterns of sewing or hand woven lace making."
(This is the British artist's first exhibition in the U.S.)

they sort of remind me of jandek album covers. the ethereality and ambiguity. i imagine you have to see them in person to get the full effect.
