Andrew Edlin Gallery is pleased to announce Relevé, an exhibition exploring the metaphor of lifting or re-lifting, of being brought out of the ordinary moment to the extraordinary, of moving from an impossible darkness into the light. Curated by Jessica Murray the exhibition will feature works by Fritz Chesnut, Brady Dollarhide, Chris Doyle, Daniel Joglar, Todd Knopke, and Jennifer & Kevin McCoy.
The Cloud series was inspired by Alfred Stieglitz’s Equivalent Series (1922-35), a photographic study of clouds as pure pattern. In this work, a cloud formation is airbrushed onto the surface of a cylinder. The cylinder is mounted to a motor, which rotates it slowly. A live video camera captures this image which gives the appearance of clouds moving across the sky, creating a one shot movie. In the foreground of the live video image, a group of people stand next to a car, pointing at a distant UFO floating in the still desert sky.
