“SHADOWS” OR “REALITY”? by Katherine Loveland, Exhibition Opening
Artist Katherine Loveland‘s six abstract macrophotographs of nature provide witnesses a greater sense of an image through varied perspectives, colors and compositions. Nature is much richer than our cursory first impression. A rose is just a rose, or is it?
Plato’s Allegory of the Cave challenges us to wonder: is our vision of nature “real” or a “shadow”? What exactly is truth? In “SHADOWS” OR “REALITY”?, Loveland’s photographs represent reality, and the artwork labels and name of the object represent the shadow. Loveland’s work emphasizes how nature is richer than a superficial and predetermined view typically provides, and how viewing nature in depth allows us the opportunity to embrace a complex reality.
“SHADOWS” OR “REALITY”? will be on display at Gallery 110 from October 5 – 28, 2023. Gallery hours are Thursday – Saturday from 12pm – 5pm and by appointment. Please join us for the First Thursday Art Walk on October 5, 2023 from 4-8pm.
