Women Photographers’ Collective

Show ran from 6/1/2001 to 6/30/2001

“Seeing in the Dark,” photography by Corinne Martin Diop, Rebecca Silberman, Metinda Trout LeBlanc

Personal revelation is the common thread running through these images by the Women Photographers’ Collective. Diop’s collaged and richly hand painted urbanscapes show the complex connection between our imprinted environment and us. Silberman’s distorted tintypes made with a pinhole camera recreate a narrative of confinement. LeBlanc’s black and white images, often coupled with text, appear like projections that candidly journalize the experience of grieving.

Darren Francis McManus

Show ran from 6/1/2001 to 6/30/2001

Darren Francis McManus, MAZZARDMAN presents ICONOGRAPHIC IMPORTS, mixed media.

This show can be viewed as a collection of artifacts taken from a distant place and time. Possessing strong tactile attributes and vibrant colors, these mixed-media works emit a tremendous unearthly energy and aura of timelessness. Through bold compositions and clever imagery, McManus transforms the mundane into the bizarre while introducing an ecclectic cast that engages the imagination

Lynnette Ojeda Mohill

Show ran from 6/1/2001 to 6/30/2001

Lynnette Ojeda Mohill, PRESSURE, painting.

In her acrylic paintings on canvas, Mohill uses the activity of doing laundry as a metaphor for conformity. By portraying human figures as laundry, the artist explores how our uniqueness is challenged, and how we often strive to present ourselves to the world in ways we think the world wants us to appear. The “pressure” of this internal dilemma is the subject of this show.
