Since homo sapiens developed the ability to fashion something from nothing, the human body shape has served as a muse, an inspiration, an obsession for creating cave man drawings, Renaissance paintings, fine art and erotica, grotesque nudity, digital selfies, and other less acceptable forms of expression. In this exhibit, Craig Colvin and Charles Mujie choose to portray and express the human form as fine art.
Should we use “abstract” in describing a photograph? Better “elemental form” or “simplified form”. Edward Weston.
Using the human body as the subject, these two award-winning photographers tease our minds’ innate ability to recognize patterns and invite us to explore light, shadows, shapes, lines and textures to slowly discover and reveal the human body in a new and different perspective.
Craig’s work has been exhibited in over 20 galleries and juried shows throughout the USA, and appeared in various publications such as Rangefinder, LensWork Extended, Luel, iFeng Fashion Magazines and multiple book anthologies. Charles’ work was juried in for display at the Center for Photographic Art International Juried Exhibition – A Portfolio Competition in 2015 and published in the August issue of B&W Magazine.
Please join Craig and Charles on Sunday, October 25 from 1 to 4pm at Keeble & Shuchat Photography, Select Gallery, 290 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA for an open house/reception. Everyone is invited. Come enjoy the food, have a drink, savor the images, and meet the photographers.
This exhibit is on display from October 16 to December 1, 2015.
