There is a superb show of photograms through April 21, 2013 by Chuck Kelton and Diazotypes by Eric William Carroll at Bosi Contemporary Gallery 48 Orchard Street, south of Grand Street on the Lower East Side, NY, NY 10002. Curated by Alison Bradley of Brodkey Projects, the exhibit is a wonderful view of some new ways of using some historic techniques.
Kelton’s haunting landscapes are pure fiction, evocative of dark and stormy nights, of sophisticated horror movies, and terrifying tales. His effective use of light and shadow, composed using only light and shadow, using no camera, make for gorgeous prints.
Carrol’s large scale cyanotypes are dreamy leafy scenes, poetic and peaceful and a wonderful contrast to Kelton’s dark visions.
