Lewis Kelley: Distillation
With this series of photographs Lewis Kelley strives to distill away the clutter and create a locus for the eyes. By untangling the scene and leaving only a single streak of vivid color, the work depicts a dichotomy of light and color, of the subject's essence and appearance, and between the sum and its parts. Opening Reception on First Friday, January 2nd,5:30pm -7:30pm. Light refreshments provided.
