Tangible and sublime
I attended the opening for Phillip Perkis' photographs at the Alan Klotz gallery on Tuesday evening. The photos were beautiful, eliciting a sense of timelessness. Many of the works explored textures and moments that evoked the presence of human affect on the land. Some of the works were ethereal and haunting in their lack of human intervention. They were all the work of a highly studied and experienced eye capturing scenes of the world around him. And I don't think I was overly influenced by the charming and disarming character that is Phil Perkis.
I also enjoyed talking to Phil's partner, Cyrilla Mozenter and am planning a trip up to the Aldrich Museum of Art to see her ongoing show there.
