The VIEWS: Frames and Shutters - July 30 - August 5


the slant from WorldwideJul 31st, 2012


(Steven Vasquez Lopez, Flat on Top, installation, 2012, acrylic on panel, 40 x 45 in. ArtSlant Showcase Juried Winner.)
Peeking through windows, passing through doors...
...we see ourselves, find ourselves. Each portal is a voyage, a lens, a transformation. Scott Hug's constellation of artists makes us trip through queer corridors, walls and rooms shouting out to us; while The Dragon is the Frame celebrates the life and work of Mark Aguhar, and mourns their passage from this world. Daniel Richter's paintings are windows into a colorful desolate sublime inhabited by solitary figures. Jesse Fleming's work can be viewed only by peering into a window, while other works invite the viewer to look out of them. Photographs can frame multiple identities, as in the work of Cindy Sherman, and countless others who followed her; whilephoto albums frame, compose, and complicate memory. And, as withRaghu Rai's photographs of India, that click of the shutter can, in the capture of isolated moments, define entire cities, or an entire nation.
