From Lens to Eye to Hand: Photorealism 1969 to Today
April 21, 2018 - August 12, 2018Hodge Galleries
From Lens to Eye to Hand reexamines this important movement in contemporary art that found its roots in the late 1960s in California and New York and continues today. Use of the camera as the foundation of painterly expression is common today, but these artists were embarking on a new way of seeing and depicting the world and were groundbreaking in their creative process. The works in the exhibition demonstrate that Photorealism remains undiluted, conceptually coherent, and consistently compelling. Viewers can approach the work in an immediate level, for its technique, finesse, and appealing subject matter; but viewers can also go deeper, and enjoy the complexity and contradictions, the multiple means of entrance that Photorealism affords.
The exhibition was organized by the Parrish Art Museum, Water MIll, New York.
