OLE MARIUS JOERGENSEN

In his work, Joergensen presents this implied narrative through work that uses humor and a strain of surrealism, as he withholds the entire story, allowing the viewer to fill in the blanks.  

 

Through meticulously staged cinematic photographs,  produced in-camera, Joergensen captures the mystery and duality of rural life in the modern world, reflecting the dreams and fears of his countrymen and landscapes.

Alex Webb And Rebekka Norris Webb

This art project is a series of paired images, one from each photographer, taken during the Webbs’ nearly 30-year friendship, marriage and creative partnership. A new language emerges in these pairings, a sort of photographic love letter between the two artists, which elevates the individual images beyond their independent positions in place and time. Both Alex and Rebecca are masterful in their use of light and color, yet have distinct visual languages, which find harmony together.

CAMILLA JENSEN

​From being an observer in most of my previous practice as a photographer, capturing what was already there, I began to explore the camera as an instrument to express myself and create what would not be unless I made it happen. This led me to examine myself as a photographic territory.

JOYCE TENNESON

Joyce Tenneson works almost uniquely with portraits, but she transcends traditional notions of what portraiture can be. In some of her images, the models close their eyes or avert their gaze, but mostly they look the viewer in the eye. We get up close to the body, which is often naked, or simply and neutrally draped in fabric, as if Tenneson wants us to encounter the person in the picture, perhaps encounter ourselves. She says that her best work look like her, perhaps not physically but spiritually.

In presenting 3 contemporary artists in a venue that has been dedicated to the arts for past 100 years, an auction house,  one reveals the artists' dedication to the alchemy of art, that transcends time and space.

ROGER BALLEN

Roger Ballen portrays a visual reality where human beings and animals are trapped in an incomprehensible and un-logical world. His photographs capture a tragic reality, free of ideals, purity and purpose in which the subjects’ actions seem senseless and absurd. The world reveals itself in photographs that are not only beautiful in their formal qualities, but also meaningful in content. Human comedy is a recurring presence in his images.

SALLY MANN

A Matter of Time, presents nearly five decades of Mann’s work. Her subjects have ranged from her children and animals, her surroundings, the overarching concept of mortality, and the conflicted beauty of the deep South, to her intimate portraits of her husband, suffering from the ravages of a wasting muscle disease. In her Self-Portrait [2012] she produces painterly and nearly abstracts images, juxtaposing mortality and immortality. But, through all the subjects, Mann stays true to her theme, her quest of exploring the transitory nature of life.
