Duncan Miller Gallery announces the artist’s reception and book signing for Amy Auerbach’s solo exhibition “Vanishing Waterfront” on Saturday, July 10 from 7-10 PM.
This series of photographs encompasses both surrealism and abstraction, merging the elements of light and water to create beautifully rendered disjunctive realities that simultaneously reveal and conceal the living world. “Often haunting, Auerbach’s photographs transform familiar everyday objects including a water tower and a windmill into murky, intangible imprints that float and shimmer even within the relative stillness of the photographic image itself; these are sublime moments held in time that appear mysterious yet strangely iconic.”
Auerbach’s exhibition is the third in the series of four concurrent solo shows from San Francisco-based artists. Duncan Miller Gallery hosts the first solo exhibitions for each of these artists in Los Angeles.
The artist’s reception for Rolf Horn’s exhibition “Landscape” will be held on July 24 from 7-10 pm. Horn’s photographs exemplify the peace and simplicity of the natural world, images that capture a transcendental sense of euphoria at the joy of being alive. Monica Denevan’s series of photographs, “Songs of the River: Portraits from Burma” are at once stark and revelatory and capture both the complexity and inherent splendor of the Burmese landscape. These images suggest Denevan’s own deeply personal investment in Burmese culture and the complex relationships she has forged over time with its people. Ben Nixon’s photographs describe a connection to history that is both geological and photographic. Utilizing the 19th century “collodion technique” Nixon’s photographs reference the nostalgia of the American West. The chance nature inherent in the wet-plate process suggests a distinctive mood and atmosphere steeped in the history of American lore.
