Lens As Palette – New Exhibition

LENS AS PALETTE, curated by James Clarke, will be an exhibition that looks to examine the concept of digital photography through the exploration of technology.  Coupled with mobile software applications, many artists, with  smart phones in hand, are re-examining the boundaries of traditional image creation. Artists with their own unique vision and knowledge of an ever-growing selection of photo-processing applications, available on many smartphones, can now create images reflective of their personalities.  These images can range from minimal to abstract, black and white to extreme color.  They can depict the subtle nuance of graphics or juxtapose that with biting hard edge graphics.  They can creating painterly images – not simply with the push of a button and a tap on a small screen, but through the time-consuming process of applying their application knowledge and expert techniques, boundless creativity and a unique vision.  The images created in this manor lend themselves to reveal more accurately the true emotion of the artists.
