Nancy and Warner Bacon Gallery

Using instant film, and the time sensitive process of Polaroid Image Transfer, Picayo creates one-of-a-kind images, always surprising in their variations. The nature of the Image Transfer process is to embrace the failure of the medium, as the dyes in the shadows peel away from the paper and create a deteriorated look reminiscent of antique fresco paintings. Often he uses a textured paper, further blurring the lines between photography and printmaking. Read more

I Think I Found It Upside Down, a solo exhibition by Dietrich Wegner
Main Gallery
Juxtaposing beauty and repulsion, comfort and fear, fantasy and objective reality, Dietrich Wegner’s work evokes conflicted emotions in the viewer. Studies in Solitude is a series of works that act as Rorschach tests, reflecting peace and unease through an illogical dream space where a natural order has been broken. These works are full-scale sculptural installations made for the sake of a photograph with no digital illusion.
