Salt & Veld, New Landscape Photographs

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 25, 2pm-5pm

SALT pushes the preferred minimalist palette of this artist with ariel views of Mexico, Utah and Australia. Now it becomes an explosive array of colors contained between sinuous lines of rivers, roads and tracks either man-made, Nature made or both. These abstract presentations appear closely akin to the 1950s and 1960’s period of painting history, making the observer question whether they are looking at a painting or a photograph.

VELD focuses on the annual spring growing season in Flevoland, The Netherlands, the largest tulip area in the region. Flying in an open door helicopter at 250-500 feet, Burdeny had to time the shoot precisely to capture the fields at peak bloom.

The artist’s first color abstract landscapes - DRIFT of 2000-2006, a series of moving and still photographic images collected during travels through Canada, France, Japan, England, Belgium and the USA, catalogued the shifting light and color of the world’s oceans and shorelines into horizontal “bands”. 16 years later, Burdeny welcomes the viewer to experience the incredible color abstraction of these ordered fields from afar and then the extreme details of the flower blooms revealed at nose length.

Jim Kazanjian

Aberrations, Anomalies & Others, Photographic Montages

The images of Jim Kazanjian are digitally manipulated composites built from photographs he finds through the internet. The technique used could be considered “hyper-collage”. Manipulating and assembling a disparate array of multiple photographic elements (sometimes more than 50) can produce a single homogenized image without the use of a camera at any stage in the process..

The method of construction has an improvisational and random quality to it, since it is largely driven by the source material available. Wading through his archive constantly and searching for interesting combinations and relationships, each new piece brought to the composition informs the image’s potential direction. It is an iterative and organic process where the end result is many times removed from its origin. The work acts as a type of mutation which can haphazardly spawn in numerous and unpredictable directions
