Laura Parker, “Rotations (Landscape in Green and Red)” (detail), 2009, chromagenic monotype prints, installation of 7 panels, 51 1/2 x 72”

Continuing through July 16, 2011

The two series of color photographs presented in Laura Parker's exhibition "Rotations and Rubbings" are made both with and without the camera. In the "Rotations" series Parker combines a projected image with a photogram so as to create a disconnect between the observable and the fabricated. Each image contained inside the circle is an abstracted landscape that is silhouetted against a black ground.

The multiple panel works cascade up and down the wall, evoking the movement of the natural landscape. The "Rubbings" series consists of photographic abstractions made from rubbing the exposed and developed paper's surface, which exposes the colors underneath. Each of Parker's rubbings starts and ends as a circle that serves as a perfect complement to the “Rotations.” Both bodies of work explore what is possible when the real and the imagined are juxtaposed.
