Second Floor Gallery, July 11 – August 30, 2019
Opening Reception July 11, 5-7 pm
Many of Marilyn Maddison’s abstract photographs originate with ice. Instead of viewing the landscape at a distance, she explores the spaces within it – spaces filled with light, fractures, and refractions. Recognizable crystalline structures or bubbles seem to place the viewer within these icy formations. And yet, many of Maddison’s images are not taken from nature, but made from expertly constructed and photographed still-lifes. She uses motion, lighting, and technique to create a sense of light falling through ice or water – tiny dioramas become vast caverns haunted by rainbows.
