on exhibit at ArtCenter Manatee November 4th – December 5th, 2008
Opening reception + party Saturday, November 8th 6-9pm
Geza Darrah’s “Through the Blue Door: Concepts+Circumstances” explores the blurred line between conceptual, technical photography and shooting intuitively, regardless of the camera’s technical functions (or lack thereof). Images of trash, industrial decay, scrapes from car wrecks and highway markings become transfixed – political statements, paintings, sumi-e brushstrokes and dramatic abstracts. Whatever the process – broken or toy cameras, medium format or a large format camera customized for hi resolution digital – “Through the Blue Door” conveys the artist’s concept, regardless of the circumstances.
