Ryan Nabulsi: Photo Secession
{Poem88}
Featuring work by: Ryan Nabulsi, Christina Price Washington

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 10, to Sat, Oct 8 2011

In many ways, Ryan Nabulsi’s camera-less photographs represent a natural conclusion to the goals of Steiglitz and Steichen in promoting pictorial photography. Relying on the manipulation of the photographic chemical process for instant photography, Nabulsi generates abstractions of lush color perhaps more akin to color field painting. He is a great cultivator of the happy accident thus chance figures prominently in his process. Like the collaborations of John Cage and Merce Cunningham, Nabulsi rolls the dice of unpredictability to create explosions of petal-like forms, a sea of green forming into a kind of tidal wave, the stratifications of a strange fossil, an ovum, a nebula.

Nabulsi says of his work:
"[It is] a collection of photographs that investigate the ontology of photography. What does it mean for something to be a photograph, to be photographic? These images walk the line between imagery, abstraction, photography and process."

About Ryan Nabulsi:
Ryan received his BA in Philosophy/Political Science from Bates College in 2006 and his MFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2009.

Christina Price Washington: experimental films

In completing her Masters studies, artist Christina Price Washington plumbed what was nearest and dearest to her: her own small family. Completely devoid of sentimentality, Washington creates a document of family life using the detritus of everyday living as proxies for the motion, commotion, emotion and stillness in her own household. Photographs, photograms, and drawings preserve the goings-on with clarity and delicacy.

In this series of experimental films, we see Washington at her most playful and inventive. Lemons, postcards, and all manner of everyday objects become the focus of her exploration of the moving image.
