Sarah Pollman: Aura/Ground
September 7 - November 9, 2014
Sarah Pollman: Aura/Ground includes work from two of the artist's photographic series--separated by shifts in philosophy and technique, but united in close observation of the tenuous relationship between past and present. Her Father/Mother gravestone images, captured in the Golden Hour when natural light is diffused, are powerful explorations of identity and eternity, of anonymity and permanence. Haunting, ghostly figures hover in her spectral and uncanny nightscapes. Taken together, these projects pull at the tenuous ties that bind past and present, and explore the ephemeral and lasting traces which remain.
