The formal, smartphone generation may be light speed ahead of some of us. When a recharge is needed though, and each stops and looks back, will the path that we have come be clear or a mish-mash of blurred images and vague memories?
PIXEL – the fine art photography exhibition by Denver’s GALLERY M will present a collectors dream in historically relevant images as well new concepts for photography. History, technique and individual innovation are at the core of each work and photographer selected. Of particular note will be the provoking photographs of Alex Guofeng Cao and the established works by masters like Howard Schatz, Alfred Eisesntaedt and Margaret Bourke-White.
- A pixel is defined digitally which shares and blurs information to form a new image. From the focus of predecessors like ben day dots, the electrification of patterns shapes our world today that we hopefully will recognize and relate. Translations will ideally be clear and cross cultural.
Through the ages art has always reflected the culture surrounding the times. Today we collect because it defines who we are visually. It is an investment in ourselves.
Changing the face of photography, Alex Guofeng Cao has pixilated history into a new art form. By pairing icon with icon he is creating a new set of historical markers. This new photograph allows Alex to follow his passion for “the shot” as he brings into play his love for pop culture as well as politics and the arts.
The 20th edition of Photo Los Angeles opens on January 13th continuing through the 17th at the Santa Monica Civic Center. Collectors and photographers alike are encouraged to visit Booth 400, where GALLERY M of Denver’s Cherry Creek will present PIXEL.
