Julie Saul Gallery announces our 11th solo show with Sally Gall, who has been represented by the gallery since 1985. She is known as a classical photographer who takes the natural world as her subject. Unbound represents a shift in Gall’s visual language in which she combines photographs to create diptychs and triptychs comprised of images that depict a weightless world without horizons. Gall brings together black and white and color images and a variety of formats which function as a whole to convey the spirit of the unbound. 
Elli Chung, who received an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2012, presents an artists’ book and selection of prints from her thesis project, KAMI. Kami is an East-Asian philosophy of aesthetics derived from Buddhist tradition; the word is Japanese for “god” or “essence” and refers to the spirits that inhabit the physical world. The book is made of large-scale prints, which can be viewed alongside the text describing each of the gods.

Viridian Artist, Robert Mielenhausen, chair of the committee that organizes the Juried Photographic Competition at Viridian, invited Nat Trotman to serve as the Curator for Viridian Artists third annual competition. Trotman joined the curatorial staff of the Guggenheim in 2001 as curatorial assistant and holds an M.Phil. from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, where he focused on performance, photography, and time-based art. In his role as Curator of the photography competition at Viridian Artists, he spent many long hours viewing over 500 images sent to Viridian from around the world.

 In his curatorial statement, Trotman states: “Whether through their stylistic refinement, conceptual clarity, emotional power, or sheer beauty, these images offer a brilliant glimpse of what photography has to offer today”.

As part of Viridian’s mission is to give exposure to outstanding under-known artists, the gallery’s director, Vernita Nemec, selected the images of thirty-one photographers to be shown in an ongoing Power Point presentation during the exhibition. She states: “the multiplicity of creative expression in photography today is staggering – being uniquely creative in today’s digital & virtual worlds is no easy feat.” “Director’s Choice” Winners include:

Castonguay * Virginia Coleman * Gregory Colvin * Jodi Lynn Concepcion * Pierre Cook * Mark Dorf * Megan Douglas * Miska Draskoczy * John Eaton * Taylor Firestein * Cynthia Fleury * Erika Gagnon Miranda Gatewood * Roger Generazzo * Barbara Habenstreit * Flora Hogman * Jennifer Lin * Robert Moran * Marc Newton * Noah Rabinowitz * Jane Rothman * Mark Savoia * Jeanette Serrat Priscilla Smith * Denise Tarantino

ART REVIEW

When too much sun is beautiful
By LEAH OLLMAN


Chris McCaw’s stunning photographs start with a small act of defiance: shooting directly into the sun, a basic no-no. Other deviations follow, but the work never strays from its grounding in awe and reverence.

The pictures pay homage to photography’s nature as a record written by light, and they chronicle, with profound beauty and elemental simplicity, what it means to occupy a specific place on earth at a specific time.

McCaw’s third show at Duncan Miller extends the “Sunburn” series he launched, by accident, nearly a decade ago when an overnight exposure burned a hole through his negative. The 21 prints on view, most from this year, were made by placing out-of-date photographic paper inside cameras that McCaw has built or customized.  Long exposures track the sun’s rise or fall as a streak or arc.

The sun’s lens-concentrated rays scorch the paper, and often slash straight through it, leaving ash-edged absences.  Whatever violence is implied, or registered, is counted by the life-endowing energy in play.

The strange moon that appears stamped out of one 4-by-5-inch print is actually the interrupted sun during an eclipse.  A triptych of 30-by-40-inch prints, made in Alaska, charts sunset and sunrise as one continuous bowl of a line, dipping behind a mountain, skimming a lake and then lifting again, the sun’s path at first a light smudge, then a luminous streak and finally a dark comet.  The extraordinary is everywhere in his work.
