JOHN FOLSOM: Hurricane Ridge and Environs

- October 15, 2005
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 17, 1-4pm
Newzones is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by an American artist John Folsom. Folsom captures raw images with his camera and then digitally alters them in order to build his own version of the landscape. Upon returning to the studio John Folsom pieces together these images using basic elements of historical painting, sublime images created from the placement of wood, water,and rock. The final image is comprised of photographic paper adhered to wood. The works are further enhanced with paint and wax, but the pigment is applied in a manner that suggests digital enhancement.
John Folsom received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Cinema and Photography from the Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL in 1990. Folsom has exhibited extensively throughout North America. His work can be found in public collections such as the Tennessee State Museum (Nashville, TN) and the Christoph Merian Foundation (Basel, Switzerland).
