Spatial Rhythms - The Photography of Peter Dreyer
Presented by Canvas Fine Arts
June 20, 2010
Spatial Rhythms, an Artist's Reception Featuring the Photography of Peter Dreyer. Though their subjects vary greatly, all of the images selected for Spatial Rhythms are bold of line and assertive of space. Dreyer's "Feather" series (four of which are included in Rhythms) portray ordinary plumes dramatically lit, rich in motion and revelatory in grace. Intricate fractals dominate his botanical photograms (images created by exposing objects placed directly upon photosensitive paper) "Oak Leaf" and "Seaweed". When Dreyer bridges his abstract and representative sensibilities, as he does in the architectural studies "Edgartown Roof" and "Vincent House, Reverse-Reflex," he waxes surrealistic and, at times, positively Escherian. The fact that Dreyer eschews digital reworking makes his images all the more remarkable. Peter's works will be on view and for sale from June 14th to August 21st at Dunia -- Located in Maynard, Massachusetts, Dunia Ecostore specializes in housewares, home décor, boutique, jewelry, bath and body, personal care and gift products, all hand-picked from vendors committed to sustainable, fair-trade, and cruelty-free practices. The Gallery at Dunia is an ongoing project for promoting the awareness of local artists and non-profit organizations.
