Though they’re created digitally, Can Pekdemir’s portraits mimic the high-contrast values of daguerreotypes. Pekdemir conjures up strange, furry creatures using 3D modeling software, giving them hefty forms and believable textures. The results look as if these characters walked into the artist’s studio and posed for the camera. Presented as framed, archival prints, his pieces could pass for photographs. Pekdemir seems to be testing the boundaries between two and three dimensions, virtual and physical. We often take photography to be a truth-telling medium, but Pekdemir exploits this assumption to engage his viewers with these fictional personalities. Take a look at some of his recent work on Hi-Fructose.

These would be AMAZING on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Satin!  It would that daugerreotype sheen!

A hundred and one years after Duchamp assembled his Bicycle Wheel(1913), setting in motion what remains one of the most influential ideas in modern and contemporary art, a group of over 50 artists are celebrating the legacy of the readymade in the exhibition “What Marcel Duchamp Taught Me”

Worth a jaunt across the big pond! Too bad this isn’t a little more local!

Reflections of Africa - work by Nathan Luchka and curated by Eric J. Auger

image

iolabs is pleased to announce a very exciting and humbling project with artist Eric Auger who has curated a touching show titled Reflections of Africa at the Forget-Me-Not Gallery in Pawtucket, RI.

Eric Auger is a mixed media artist and costume designer who also volunteers with The Samaritans of Rhode Island.  They founded the Forget-Me-Not Gallery and Community Education Center in order to …partner with Rhode Island’s creative community to foster hope, inspiration and commemoration of the lives of our loved ones who have fallen victim to suicide.”  

 

“Last Winter while working at the Forget-Me-Not Gallery, I was approached by a lovely couple who had the incredible misfortune of losing their young son,” writes Eric.  “He was an avid photographer and before his death had taken a trip to Africa. They asked me if I would go through his photos, pick the images that resonated with me the most, and curate a show in his memory.”

image

Nathan was an explorer, and lived a life of “never ending discovery and wonder” through the lens of his camera.  Reflections of Africa not only serves as an example Nathan’s inquisitive nature, but also the innate joy and respect he had for humanity’s connection to the natural world.

image

A dedicated client of iolabs, Eric sent a cohesive 20 piece body of work for printing and finishing.  Lined up, the images of the vast savannahs, lush jungles, and the intense gazes of wild animals have an enigmatic sheen. The high gloss of these aluminum and metallic prints speaks to the newness of these discoveries, and the excitement they brought to the artist.

“Merging his point of view with my own aesthetic was daunting at times, but as the months of the summer crawled by I found that through his lens I was able to take a journey of my own.”

image

“What did he find beautiful? Why did he take this picture? How can I tell a story without knowing any of the words? …Finally letting go of all of the questions and letting the images whisper to me in the language of light, color and texture…immersing myself in someone else’s sacred sanctuary.”

image

If you are interested in seeing Nathan’s work, or want to get involved with the Forget-Me-Not Gallery, you are welcome to come to the opening of Reflections of Africa.  It begins at 5:30 pm tomorrow, Friday September 12th at 67 Park Place, Pawtucket, RI.
