Rhythms of Reflection
Exhibit at 6 Bridges Gallery, Maynard MA, August-September 2017
Reflection is a mirror of the world and a world created from contemplation. Rhythm, from the Greek rhythms, derive from rhein, means “to flow”. The images presented here elicit a flow of ideas, thoughts, and feelings. They act as a catalyst to journey into the center of a world created through imagination. This active exploration unravels realties and makes the invisible visible in order to grasp the fundamental essence.
Here images are not of what is before the camera but rather present some other meaning: the “what else it is” in the words of Photographer Minor White. The visual journey provided unleashes familiar emotions, impressions, fantasies and memories. The joining of the world, the photographer, and the viewer reveals our interconnectedness and our human condition. The spontaneous depictions of people unaware of the camera pride an avenue into a shared private moment. We see our oneness with each other and with the world.
The process of contemplation, while viewing these works and afterwards, creates a stream of consciousness and poetic portrayals limited only by our imagination and experiences.
