Exploration in Black and White
On exhibit at Central Library, October 2015
Tom Woodruff takes black & white, street-style photos depicting subjects that have all been in some way obscured by objects in the frame. The object of this work is to create an illusion and have the viewer consciously interpret the reality of the photos. In doing so I hope to draw the viewer into my photos and connect with them on an emotional level.
Kate Fleming says, “My work is an exploration of color shapes and how they work to create a composition. I strive to move the eye both through the space and across the page in a tension between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional worlds. Architecture, both interior and exterior, is a common subject in my work because its geometry lends itself to this tension. Linocut printmaking is a media that, for me, is inherently shape-oriented, utilizing clear distinctions between colors and values.”
