MOTION > BLUR

Opening Night Reception: Saturday, Dec 17TH 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Dec 17TH -31ST, 2022

Juror: Sandrine Hermand-Grisel
In most cases, photography is used to “freeze time,” with a still image. Motion in photography creates a paradox: the image is a frozen moment in time but what is captured is an object that is a blur of motion – an apparent streaking, bending, distorting and /or movement of light and objects in the foreground or background of the image frame. Blur can demonstrate the velocity of movement. It can convey the emotional dimensions of the subject photographed, presenting dream like qualities by invoking the surreal and transitory nature of time passing. Meteors streak across the sky, ghostly figures move through a room, the artist paints shapes with a light source. These are some examples of how blur represents motion in time-lapse photography.

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that demonstrates the fundamental qualities that make motion & blur a compelling element of contemporary photography.

NUDE GEOGRAPHIES

Opening Night Reception: Dec 17TH, 2022 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Dec 17TH - 31ST, 2022

Curated By: Praxis Directors

 

The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art - specifically in photography - has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions.
 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic works that explore the nude in any of its varied styles including: figure studies, environmental nudes, implied nudes and erotica - just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre.

PRAXIS PRESENTS A SOLO EXHIBITION

He Found Himself, He Will Not Draw Passers-By Anymore

Artist: Sashko Ilov

Reception: Saturday Oct 15TH 6-8PM
Exhibition Dates: Oct 15TH - 29TH, 2022

"He found himself, he will not draw passers-by anymore" is a story that takes place between two empty beaches. The walkers on the beach and their experiences of day-to-day plights. Sashko’s artwork covers native and modern elements mixed together and takes a critical view of social, political, and cultural issues. While they use a variety of materials and processes in each project, their methodology is consistent.
