Tanner’s “Further Conversations” is a direct extension of, at least in form, of his series, What Was Left Behind. The objects again are those used in everyday life and can be thought of as both intimate and comforting. Technically a big difference in the new series lies in the making of the prints, which are low key. There are no white tones in the prints. They require a closer, slower viewing, which I hope viewers will take the time to do.
In “Representation/Abstraction: Bangladesh in Light and Shadow” Ullman is fascinated by light and shadow, by forms emerging and disappearing. While walking the streets of rural villages in Bangladesh, she looked into the darkness of the stalls and markets or into the shadows on the sides of the streets, waiting for a face to emerge and be held by the light. In contrast, she sometimes found a full shadow created by a person who moves across a beam of light.
The show is Online at https://perspectivegallery.org/february-2021 and in the Gallery. However, due to Covid-19 the gallery is currently closed.
