Last Autumn, the employee cafeteria where I work was rebuilt. When it opened the dining room was full of beautiful abstract art. The artist, Mariyah Sultan, is a part-time employee of the company and is also responsible to curate future exhibits in the space. The first of these is a photography group show of work by employees. After a period of working out what work and sizes would be accepted, those of us participating will be delivering photographs this week. I will have two pieces in the exhibit.
The first is an abstract composition of a doorway of an old, currently abandoned, building at Sandy Hook, NJ, made in May, 2016. We decided it actually worked better cropped and rotated and will be presented 11"X17", plus the frame which the company will provide.
The second is part of a series I am working on of body elements of models with incense smoke. This one, of Erica Jay was made in June, 2016. It had been her suggestion to use incense smoke some months earlier, so I finally had the opportunity work on this with her. This image, presented 16"X20", again plus the frame, was one of the last of that session. This is a size I can not print at home, so I'm looking forward to seeing how the image works at that scale.
I am excited for this opportunity. If they decide to have an opening, to which I can invite people, I'll post about that.
