Our Current Show
Drive By Shooting: At the Intersection of
Man and Nature
Photography by Dan Harelick
Exhibit: August 11th - September 29th
Reception: August 22nd, 6-9pm
Artist Statement: Every image in this series, “Drive By Shooting: At the Intersection of Man and Nature” is the result of a spontaneous pause while driving or walking during the normal course of my day. Each has at its core a fleeting moment of visual stimulation as seen through the everchanging prism of color and texture provided by natures constant reclaimation of man’s work. Often shot in a matter of seconds through the open car window, these images should be viewed within a shifted paradigm which explores the relationship between creation and consideration. My subjects, the handywork of time, would exist regardless of whether or not I wandered by and chose to regard their beauty. Hence, the visual component is merely recording a glimpse into the ongoing process of creation.
This collection seeks to inspire you to open your eyes and appreciate the beauty that surrounds you on a daily basis, because that will translate into more than just an awareness for visual details. It will trigger a willingness to see excitement in the mundane, and to appreciate the significance in the dilapidated, creating a sensitivity that pries open the closed mind and infiltrates the hardened heart.
If this collection achieves the modest goal of motivating you to look differently at that rusted-out wrought iron fence or crumbling shed you stroll past every day, the series will have been a success.
