“Choice, Chance & Circumstance” explores new approaches in 21st century fine art photography. From glitch apps to drones, these artists are using the latest tools to expand our ideas about taking & processing photographs.
By digitally manipulating hi-res paparazzi photographs into pure abstraction, Sloan explores the obsession with celebrity culture, the invasion of privacy & the complex issues of ownership of image, appropriation & copyright.
Lilly's conceptually driven projects speculate on the interplay of choice, chance & circumstance. Her new work includes a series of photographs of natural elements rearranged into gridded patterns that evoke the urge in nature to connect & evolve.
Essick creates photographs that move beyond mere documentation to reveal, in careful compositions, the human impact of development, as well as the enduring power of the land.
Herzog creates a variety of works that explore the relationship between the viewer & the artist with themes of accessibility & prioritized sight, often taking the form of photographs, books, drawings & site-specific sculptures. His on-going series of photographs “Walking Lines,” utilizes a drone to capture his walking as a form of mark making.
