It is a great pleasure to announce wall space gallery’s summer show
Keith Johnson‘s newest body of work captures the spirit of Lake Kanandaiqua, the largest of upstate New York’s Finger Lakes, in his series The Chosen Place. Enchanted by the connections between the light, lake waters and immense sky Keith set out to build his own series of associations. The intersection of earth and water blur horizons and context, transcending simple photographs to surround the viewer with emotional bonds.
Deborah Bay‘s series The Big Bang is an examination of power, violence and energy. In a multi-layered visual exploration of how bullets shatter bone and muscle, Bay utilized Plexiglass, clarifying impact patterns. These impacts also create fanciful versions of galaxies, each unique intergalactic ideas of what could be when art collides with science.
Kerry Mansfield‘s series Grounded was born from a desire to find balance, to regain connection to the world around her. It was in the intersection at waters edge where she found peace. These beautiful, expansive images allow us to breathe in the sea air, to feel the water at our feet, and to be part of our greater universe.
