Very excited to have my photograph, Pink Feathers, included in the exhibition, Post Portrait Photography at the San Jose Art Museum, curated by Susan Leask, opening October 9th and running through January 18, 2015.
This group exhibition of contemporary portraiture explores the aesthetic, psychological, and emotional implications of the gaze in photography today. Here, the traditional view of a portrait is subverted: instead, a dynamic and ambiguous relationship between object and subject develops. The power of the gaze is blurred the moment the sitter becomes a partner in the art-making process. Included in the exhibition are works by Nicholas Albrecht, Caitlin Atkinson Richard Avedon, Charles Berger, Jim Campbell, Kelli Connell, Gohar Dashti, Beth Yarnelle Edwards, Katy Grannan, Elizabeth Heyert, r.r. jones, Henrik Kerstens, Miguel Angelo Libarnes, Lesley Louden, Jana Marcus, Shirin Neshat, Catherine Opie, Aline Smithson, and Larry Sultan.
