Description

Garrison Art Center is pleased to announce Analecta: Excerpts from a Whole, a solo exhibition of photographic images by Cali Gorevic. This is her second solo exhibition at Garrison Art Center and it will include one of her ceramic puzzle sculptures which is also the subject of her photographic images. The exhibition will be on view in the Balter Gallery of Garrison Art Center from December 7 through January 5, 2020, with an opening reception on Saturday, December 7, from 5-7pm.

Analecta: Excerpts from a Whole, is a body of photographic work that started with Gorevic creating a ceramic sculpture in the form of a puzzle. She then reconfigured portions of the puzzle pieces to create compositions to be photographed. The result is black and white still life photographs of sensuous forms fitting together in soft and mysterious light. The kinship between Gorevic’s hand-made objects and her eye as a photographer is expressed through the lens of the camera and the translation of forms onto paper, in this case digital printing. Gorevic was inspired to make sculptures during her many years of darkroom printing when the process of emerging imagery onto photo paper felt to her like “sculpting with light”. This essence of form is very much alive in her present work, vis-a-vis the puzzle sculptures which act as her muse for exploring human nature and formal visual concerns. The shapes have an imperfect, organic feel to them which introduce a human quality and fallibility that Gorevic finds compelling. This notion of human imperfection expressed through natural organic forms is a theme that Gorevic has visited over the years. In fact, her first exhibition at Garrison Art Center in 2004 of still life images was entitled Living Things and represented her early interest in this theme as it continues today.

Gorevic has moved into the digital world without forsaking the gelatin silver print process. Her photographic children’s book, Imagine That, will soon be available as an e-book as well as paperback. She is the recipient of many awards and has had many solo and juried shows in the Hudson Valley, New York City and California. Her work appears in numerous private and corporate collections including Alliance Capital in New York City, Erste Bank in New York City, ITT in New York City, and Quest Diagnostics in Lyndhurst, NJ.

Gorevic has served on the Board of Directors and staff of Garrison Art Center where she taught and managed film photography. She has served as a curator, juror and judge for many organizations including NYFA. Cali is the founder of PHOTOcentric, a national juried photography competition running concurrent with this solo exhibition in the Gillette Gallery of Garrison Art Center through January 5.

Both exhibitions will be on view from December 7 – January 5 with an opening reception on Saturday, December 7 from 5-7:00pm.

The Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center are open Tuesday-Sunday 10am-5pm, and located on the banks of the Hudson River, next door to the Metro-North Hudson Line, Garrison stop, one hour from Grand Central.
