Delaware Art Museum – Upcoming Exhibition – “Transitions”
Today I’ll be delivering three framed prints to the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington. The prints are part of a juried photography exhibition of work by the Brandywine Photo Collective, a terrific group of talented photographers that I’ve had the pleasure of associating with for the last few years.
The show is entitled “Transitions“, and looks to be a very good one, with a high level of work. The show has 31 images that were chosen in by juror Eddie Soloway.
I felt that three images from an ongoing series, “Burnt Offerings”, would be appropriate for the theme, and happily, they were accepted!
The images are explained:
“Burnt Offerings” is a series of images of burned leaves. I’ve always been captivated by the beauty and variety of leaves. In photographing things that are “past their prime”, I work with the notion of finding beauty in things which are thought to no longer have any. In the fall, leaves are burned to ash. I decided to burn some leaves to discover what would happen to them, and I found something amazing. Although rendered to near ash they held their shape, albeit somewhat deformed, and are extremely fragile. Although devoid of color and nearly destroyed by the heat, I find them to be quite beautiful and almost metallic.
Please make some time to get to the show to see the show, which opens on May 3rd and runs through August 10th, with the opening reception on Sunday May 4th from 12-4 PM. I won’t be able to see you at the opening reception as my May Group Workshop is that weekend, but we will definitely be down to see the show before it ends!
