05.13.2016 - Michael Eastman: Derivation

The photographs in "Derivation" capture in full color a dramatically different, restored Forest Park of present. These are a formal departure from Eastman's meticulous past work, being shot sans tripod with a 35mm digital camera while walking on foot. To achieve the images' stippled surfaces, Eastman devised a "metaphorical lens" for his camera, made from pieces of antique glass found at yard sales and souvenir shops. He says of this method, "I wanted to develop a kind of print that was new, my own, and a completely different take on the park."

Eastman works intuitively within this process, placing the lenses either in front of or behind the camera. The resulting visual effect traverses a hybrid territory between photography and painting. Eastman refers to this method as an "impressionistic camera," as the images evoke those plein-air landscapes while being produced via photographic means. Eastman describes them as "about sculpture and texture and color and surface," celebrating their spontaneity and accessibility.

Opening Reception for the artist: Friday, May 13, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The show runs May 13 - June 24, 2016

09.25.2015 - Andrew Millner: Rose Parade

Millner's work explores the natural world, and particularly the relationship between art and nature, the natural and the artificial. Inspired by the floats of the Tournament of Roses Parade, Millner traveled to Pasadena in 2012 to photograph the voluminous, glorious flowers close up. Millner photographs his natural subjects first, and then draws each flower or pattern of flowers by hand. He draws with a stylus on a digital tablet, creating a series of digital drawings.

Opening Reception: Friday, September 25, 2015 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

01.10.2011 - Gallery Acquisition of the Complete Set of Kara Walker's "Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War"

Each of the 15 prints in Kara Walker's portfolio of works created at the Neiman Center began with an enlargement, using offset lithography, of a woodcut plate from Ed. Alfred H. Guernsey and Henry M. Alden's Harper's Pictorial History of the Civil War, which was first published in Chicago in 1866. Each of these images was then overlaid with Walker's silhouette figures rendered with solid black silkscreen. This print series marks the first time Walker has united her trademark silhouettes with the species of historical documentation that influenced the development of her aesthetics. "These prints," Walker explains, "are the landscapes that I imagine exist in the back of my somewhat more austere wall pieces." Walker uses a variety of strategies to break in, cover over, or otherwise intervene within the narrative of the woodcuts, usurping the images' original dramatic purposes in favor of ones of her own invention. Walker's silhouettes interrupt Union maneuvers as often as Confederate ones, as if no matter which side wins, there will be suffering.
