The exhibit will be open September 1 - September 30. No reception.
My work with dancers is an exploration of the ephemeral, impermanent nature of dance, and attempts to find areas of permanence through the use of choreographic sculpture or abstract visualizations created by dancers' movements. This latest series, "Less Ephemeral", employs a complex process where dancers move and press themselves against a thermally-sensitive surface, and are photographed by a high-end industrial thermal camera. The camera captures the residue of the movement over time, as the heat of the dancer's body is applied and then slowly dissipates. I then translate this to the visual realm using a variety of thermal palettes, and create prints of the resulting images on aluminum, acrylic and paper. These are available in limited, numbered series.
