The Photography of Lois Greenfield
February 11, 2013 – April 6, 2013
Thrasher-Horne Center for the Arts, Orange Park, FL
This new presentation of Lois Greenfield’s work brings a fresh perspective and conceptualization of her work.
For this exhibition, Greenfield’s work was re-visionned into “galleries” that move beyond any one single image or instantaneous moment. These galleries become a resonant field of forms and figures, rhymes and configurations with sections and movements intended to form shifting structures of concept and design. Greenfield collaborated with Canadian artist Henry Jesionka to create dynamic and very “musical” presentation that plays on scale, placement in sequence and configuration.
This series reconfigures the human body into a motif of locomotion. An oscillation of opposing forces traps these moments in a suspension of time and gravity.
Whimsical narratives run through these photographs. The dancers become characters in unfolding plots.
Statuesque images evoke the elemental forces of wind, water, earth and fire.
These images explore the co-existence of the infinite and the momentary, where mysteries are not solved but contemplated.
We can only see the passage of time, not time standing still. Yet 1/2000 of second, when photographed, not only reveals what the naked eye can’t see, but ironically gives it more solidity than it had as a fleeting instant. Perhaps these stilled moments were not meant to be seen.
The realm of geometric proportions are expressed in the human body. Patterns, intervals and relationships give rise to harmonic waves.
This kinetic installation mimics Lois’s photographic process. As the cube rotates, the dancers seem to float amongst one another, forming spontaneous dreamlike compositions.
This installation of sixty-four individual images evokes calligraphy and ideograms. Iconic images become components in various shifting compositions. With its layered correspondences and echoed gestures, this mosaic invites the viewer to trace different vectors within.
