Visitors: A Display of Perpetual Discovery by Lindsay Garland
Please join us for refreshments at the reception for BAAC’s current exhibition, Visitors: A Display of Perpetual Discovery, featuring work by Lindsay Garland. The reception will be held THIS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10 from 5pm-7pm, with a brief artist talk by Lindsay at 6pm.
The exhibition features photographs by Garland that have been digitally manipulated to create an ethereal world. The series embodies the concept of perpetual discoveries made over a period of time. Much like German romantic paintings, the images in this collection have a dreamlike quality that allows the viewer to escape from the mundane and enter a world outside of reality.
“In my photographs, I try to construct a world that is dramatically separate from the one we live in. I merge several images together, but only reveal segments from each, to build the concept I desire. These creations are conceived from observation of daily life, dreams, and faded recollections of memories. I want the viewer to forget they are simply looking at a photograph and instead enter a world that is outside of reality.” – Lindsay Garland.
