Chaque artiste a travaillé avec de l’imagerie infrarouge depuis plus de vingt ans. Les images de l’exposition ont utilisés alternativement du film ou du numérique. Les œuvres de cette exposition montre la versatilité de ce support et présente l’interprétation unique de chaque artistes. Les travaux de cette exposition présente des images variés, du paysage au portrait plein pied, en passant par les collages multi-couches.

This exhibit allows us to see something that our human eye cannot observe. Infrared light-waves are beyond the visible spectrum. This invisible radiation is found at both ends of the invisible spectrum. Beyond visible violet, there is invisible ultraviolet and at the other end, beyond visible red, is invisible infrared. As the infrared spectrum extends beyond the end of the visible spectrum, wavelengths increase and infrared then merges into what are called heat waves. We cannot see infrared light waves… but infrared film and special converted digital cameras can.

The appeal of infrared photography is varied. The images that you capture with infrared are dramatic and surreal. A landscape becomes dream-like. Portraits and nudes take on an ethereal beauty: skin becomes translucent and resembles porcelain. The skies and clouds are dramatically pronounced, the vegetation glows, and there is an other-worldly, ephemeral essence to the work. Suddenly the world as we know it, shows up in print form looking strangely bizarre or wonderfully romantic. This is the mystery and magic of infrared. It carries you beyond the literal perspective of your eyes into the limitless vision of your mind’s eye. These four photographers approach the medium from different viewpoints, showing the range of possibilities inherent in the medium.

“Sideshow” By Lori Ballard

Lori Ballard is a photographer and artist residing in Florida. Intrigued by the odd and unusual Lori has traveled extensively since the early 1990’s to State Fairs documenting the people and attractions of the mysterious carnival and circus life. She steps outside the box of traditional prints presented in frames by transferring images that are cut into pieces then sewn together to create a 4 feet by 6 feet canvas banner. The final coat of sepia tinted acrylic medium adds a weathered appearance giving it an antique feel that seems to transcend time. The pieces are meant to evoke the traditional banners of circus sideshow acts used to attract visitors.

  • Opening Reception: Friday, February 4, 6-9pm
  • Third Friday Art Walk Reception: Friday, February 18, 6-9pm
