New YorkBryan Graf: Wavelengths
Halsey McKay presents Wavelengths, Bryan Graf’s third solo exhibition at the gallery.
Added to list
On April 26th Bryan Graf will drive from Portland, Maine to East Hampton, NY and will hang one finished photograph in the gallery. From then until May 24th he will be at the Further On Artist In Residency and will add new work to the show daily. Wavelengths is an accumulative exhibition of Graf’s multiple approaches to photography that includes regimented daily seascapes made at high and low tide, nightly records of the moon cycle and other photo-based works that are more sensorial responses and perceptual translations of the landscape. The show functions like a job, with set hours for certain work and other times that allow for play, for clock watching, and experimentation. The resulting exhibition is a site-responsive, local, and homegrown reflection of his relationship to the area, the residency, and the gallery space.
We would like to thank Christina and Alan Macdonald for their support and generosity in hosting the artist at the Further On Artist in Residency. For more information visit: www.furtheronair.org.
