The New Mexico Museum of Art is taking advantage of winter months to celebrate the dark. Specifically, its influence on painters and photographers with a trio of exhibitions.
Photography is most often associated with light and the word itself means “light writing” in Greek.
However, in this exhibition of nearly thirty images, four Southwestern photographers explore the dark side of the medium.
Featured are about thirty photographs by Christopher Colville, Scott B. Davis, Michael Lundgren, and Ken Rosenthal. Each of the artists makes pictures in the landscape at night, inviting us to explore our preconceptions, fears, and fantasies about the world of shadows.
The museum will be hosting an opening reception for the shows on Jan. 4, and a conversation with photographers Christopher Colville, Scott B. Davis and Ken Rosenthal on January 5.
