San Francisco area photographer Candace Gaudiani took photographs out train windows. “Traveling is dreaming,” says Gaudiani, “at least in a train when the monotonous sound of the rolling wheels is gradually carrying the traveler away into a kind of walking coma, and he perceives the landscape flying by as only apparitional: more patches of color than landscapes, more shapes and surfaces than architecture.”
A boxed set of Forty Eight States will be on view at the Griffin and is courtesy of Panopticon Gallery in Boston.
An established fine art photographer and educator based in Portland, Oregon, Heidi Kirkpatrick will exhibit from her body of work Specimens, courtesy of Panopticon Gallery in Boston. Her work explores the female figure, family narratives and contemporary issues of being a woman. Kirkpatrick applies film positives onto objects such as vintage children’s blocks, books, mahjong tiles and tins creating unique photo objects. “My work’” says Kirkpatrick, “is reminiscent of nineteenth century cased images…..where the hinged tins open and close to reveal or conceal the secrets they hold.”
Chicago photographer Ryan Zoghlin will showcase work at the Griffin from his series Aerotones too and Kiddieland. Zoghlin says that the images in Aerotones too are a continuation of his Airshow and Aerotones series. Zoglin says that the work is intended to be carried in ones pocket close to oneself for inspiration, to alleviate stressful parts of the day and to create sentimental value as opposed to monetary value. His Kiddieland images are small symbols of his memories from years of visiting Kiddieland in Melrose Park Illinois
