This March, the Abigail Ogilvy Gallery will be presenting Dualisms, a show curated by Darkroom Boston’s founder, David Guerra. Here is a preview of three of the emerging Boston artists whose work you can look forward to discovering at our gallery this spring:
A graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University’s combined degree program, William Russack has both a BFA in photography and a BS in environmental studies. His work addresses the relationship between nature and mankind, and the way humans attempt to control nature but also be a part of it. Using both traditional and digital photography, he captures the places where natural and manmade elements intersect, at times fighting for dominance, and at times existing harmoniously.
Daniel Barreto is a School of the Museum of Fine Arts graduate who studies the interaction between humans and nature by using technology to create representations of imagery found in nature. He sees technology as an element that disconnects us from our environment, and therefore sees it as an intriguing medium for conveying his ideas. His work overlaps imagery of the constructed and the naturally occurring to highlight the ways in which they are tied together.
Eben Haines is a MassArt-trained painter who deconstructs the classic subject of portraiture and human figure in ways that brings out the complex and chaotic aspects of their inner life. The object, the artist, and image present themselves simultaneously in his work, through layers of paint that cover and uncover the image in ways that reveal the artists hand and emphasize the history and emotional journey of the subject.
