September 2014 Exhibit at fotofoto gallery: “Pears” Paired with “Reality Unchained”

Beginning September 5th at fotofoto gallery in downtown Huntington, New York, gallery artists Kristin Holcomb and Seth Kalmowitz exhibit new works.

“Pears”, by Kristin Holcomb, is a collection of photographs that have been hand-worked, using a complicated layering of oil paint and gesso over black and white photographs.  Kristin builds rich and complex images of grown pears that she describes as “exhibiting a gestural sensuality that is almost human.”   Her images allow these simple fruits to exude sadness, love, timidity, even rejection.  Kristin Holcomb’s pears creep out of the darkness to reveal themselves. The images are no longer still lives but portraits.

Seth Kalmowitz’s “Reality Unchained” asks one to remember the late “60”s and early “70’s – when things were cool and groovy.  Seth’s images attempt to recapture the visual stimulation provided by “better living through chemistry”.  He invites you to unchain your senses from the visual and emotional confines of reality as we see it and allow these images to set the new norms.

There will be an opening reception on Saturday, September 6th from 5pm until 7pm.  This event, as always, is free an open to the public.  fotofoto gallery is located at 14 West Carver Street, Huntington.  For more information you can visit our web site or call 631.549.0448.  Gallery hours are Fridays from 5pm – 8pm, Saturdays from 12noon – 8pm, and Sundays from 12noon – 4pm.  Also on display will be a group exhibit by gallery artists.
