Midtown Opening Tonight: Aaron Siskind vintage prints @gittermangallery - reception from 6-8pm. đŸ“·

Gitterman Gallery

Aaoron Siskind opens tonight from 6-8.

The exceptional vintage prints in this exhibition are masterful examples of Aaron Siskind's interest in exploring the inherent abstraction of the real world. With these works, Siskind simultaneously captured the bold, graphic qualities of his subject and their nuances of texture and tonality. The images appear both as powerful, gestural forms from a distance, and as rich topographies with minute details and subtlety up close. As abstract as they are, his photographs still possess a sincere, humanist quality. His subjects are often fragments of marks or forms created by others, traces of human existence. As such, the images function as meditations on what we leave behind: emotional, even spiritual records of the interconnectedness of all things. Siskind’s work has often been compared to that of the Abstract Expressionists, with whom he identified and even exhibited. The visual similarities between Aaron Siskind’s graphic photographs and the bold, gestural marks of Abstract Expressionist paintings is striking, but there are important differences as well. As photographs of actual things (walls with peeling paint, piles of rocks, etc), Siskind's works introduce a tension between the real and the abstract that is absent from any painting.

Henry Holmes Smith, Phoenix, 1972-1974

Henry Holmes Smith was an innovative photographer and an influential writer and teacher. He was instrumental in establishing the photography program for LĂĄszlĂł Moholy-Nagy at the New Bauhaus in 1937 and went on to teach for 30 years at Indiana University where he founded the first MFA program in photography.
In 1946 Smith began making Light Study photographs, which evolved from the assignment he gave his students at The New Bauhaus. He used wood, paper, reflective and refractive objects to intercept and transform light from a projector. He was inspired by Francis Bruguiùre’s cut paper work. The studies were initially made in black and white and Smith printed some of them as dye-transfer prints, at times layering multiple images.
Later, Smith also took thick pieces of glass plate and drew on them with light and dark Karo syrup, standing the plates upright so the syrup would run. Next, he would flash sensitized paper with light through the glass and develop the print; if he was happy with the refraction print, he would copy it onto 4 x 5 film. The images often featured anthropomorphic shapes and mythical characters. Smith did not use registration pins when he made dye transfer prints; he used his judgment to place each succeeding matrix.
This “free printing” meant that the color layers were slightly displaced, causing the edges to vibrate. As Smith writes: “In my view, the use of color for symbolic ends, however personal, is redemptive. No matter from what or in what way such color is generated, as it functions symbolically, it will let our spirits soar.” #HenryHolmesSmith #gittermangallery #parisphoto

Jean-Pierre Sudre, Matériographie, 1970 at booth B31 at #parisphoto
Jean-Pierre Sudre was born in Paris in 1921. A masterful technician in the darkroom, Jean-Pierre Sudre employed and created innovative techniques that amplified the abstract and
suggested both spiritual and metaphysical concerns.
In the 1960s he took his explorations of nature toward the
micro, creating crystals on glass plates that he would use as "negatives." Sudre employed the Mordançage technique on many of these prints, which he invented based on a late
nineteenth century process known as etch-bleach.
Mordançage solution includes hydrogen peroxide, acetic acid and copper chloride. Once a fully processed gelatin silver print is put into the Mordançage solution, the shadow areas swell. Sudre would then wipe them away. Next, he
would thoroughly wash the print and redevelop it. He used a variety of different developers in various solutions and often made his own photographic chemistry. He was able to
achieve a range of colors from the various toners he used and
by letting the developer oxidize. His dynamic and expressive
use of color became an integral part of his work. "Sudre’s experimentation, which continued until the early
nineteen-nineties (he died in 1997), remained marvelously various, ranging in tone from psychedelic to scientific. It should be mandatory viewing for the new school of young
photographers investigating the pleasures of the darkroom." — Vince Aletti, The New Yorker, March 14, 2016

Chargesheimer, Untitled, c. 1955-59, chemigram
Booth B31 at #parisphoto Photographer, painter, sculptor, stage designer, graphic designer, exhibition designer, and one-time opera director, Chargesheimer was born Karl Hargesheimer in 1924 in Cologne where he lived most of his life. His studies of photography and design at university were cut short with the outbreak of WWII. He was opposed to the War and successfully avoided military service. In 1948 he joined a professional artists' union and he changed his name to Chargesheimer, a contraction of his given name.

Chargesheimer photographed post-war Cologne extensively, creating numerous books. His images of the city, its people, and portraits of significant figures, are both expressively dynamic works of art and historic documents of post-war Germany.

As early as the late 1940s, Chargesheimer began to explore abstraction in photography with photograms and montages. This "chemigram" is part of a body of cameraless work he made utilizing photographic paper, developer and fixer. In 1961 he made an edition of 25 unique deluxe books containing 10 matted and bound "chemigrams". #gittermangallery

Lionel Wendt, Male Figure, c. 1938 at #parisphoto booth B31

Lionel Wendt was born in Colombo, Ceylon (pre-independent Sri Lanka) and studied in England at Cambridge (law) and at the
Royal Academy of Music in London. Though he practiced law and taught and performed piano, he ultimately pursued a career in photography. Wendt was dedicated to the well being of his country and was a founder member of the Colombo '43 Group of Sri Lankan artists. Sadly he died a year after it was founded. One cannot help to image what other remarkable art he could have
recreated had he lived a longer life.
Wendt's work has a strong modernist aesthetic but his subject
matter ranged from figurative to still life to almost ethnographic imagery of his country. He also contributed to the development
of modern art in his country by sharing prints of contemporary European artists and books from England with aspiring artists
and writing critically.

James Herbert opens Thursday September 7 from 6-8pm.

James Herbert's photographs of nude young adults, seemingly lost in the intimacy of a moment, combine conceptions of film and photography with elements of art history to create images that hover between the worlds of fact and fiction, between the romantic and the real. The photographs, made of frames selected from his films, are thus the product of a collaboration between Herbert, functioning as an engaged director, and his subjects. As images, they are more poetic and symbolic than concrete, photographic allegories that draw on the visual traditions of painting.

In 1989, using black and white, and color motion picture film that he shot mostly in the 1980s, Herbert projected individual frames, one by one, on a wall, selecting specific ones that he then re-photographed with 35mm black and white film. He later enlarged the images, printing them on 16 x 20 inch paper. This process of re-photographing and then enlarging emphasized the grain of the film and created an aesthetic that mirrors the plasticity of paint. It makes the flesh palpable, in the same way that layering paint on a canvas can provide a visceral experience. He selected the frames to photograph for their still properties, thus they are not necessarily the same edit he used for the films he made from the same footage, which were also made with a re-photographic process.

Born in 1938 in Boston, Herbert grew up in Rhode Island. As a teenager he attended figure drawing classes at the Rhode Island School of Design. He received a B.A. in art history at Dartmouth College in 1960 and an M.F.A. in painting in 1962 at the University of Colorado where he studied briefly with Clyfford Still and Stan Brakhage. Herbert moved to Athens, Georgia in 1962 and taught painting and filmmaking at the University of Georgia for many years.

Herbert has made over forty short films and four independent features as well as many music videos for R.E.M and the B52s. He has earned numerous fellowships, grants and awards including two Guggenheim Fellowships (one for film and one for painting). #Jimherbert #gittermangallery #nycgallery #art #fineartphotography
