Event Description:
The Fine Arts Gallery is please to present My Calling, featuring photographs by
Amy Becker, https://www.amybecker.com and Kerry Kolenut, http://www.kerrykolenut.com and paintings by Lisa Ficarelli-Halpern,https://www.lisaficarelli-halpern.com in a playful look at our love affair with our phones, not only used to make a calls, but as objects of veneration, access to social media, for making videos and used as a camera.
Amy Becker explores the abandoned phone booth or payphones with her camera. Her Dead Ringers depicts the remains of those machines and the environments in which they exist. Her world has turned into a perpetual scavenger hunt to discover payphones in familiar or new settings. She often finds payphones hidden in plain sight.
Kerry Kolenut creates a photo with in a photo as she skillfully takes pictures of others taking pictures. She says capturing the person in the moment of capturing a moment bypasses the subjectivity of the subjective by focusing on the subject herself, and interrogating the documented reliability of unreliable memories.
Lisa Ficarelli-Halpern is a figurative painter whose work is informed by a love of art historical images, and our contemporary culture of technology and fashion. The central theme of the work is based upon a duality– the coexistence of old and familiar with ever emerging new material that challenges and assimilates established concepts. She believes technology can never be completely separated from humanity - we an integral part of technological existence and innovation and it continues to evolve because of us.
The exhibition runs from September 7 through October 12, with the opening reception on September 7 from 5 to 7. The show will be part of JC Fridays and the Jersey City Artists Studio Tour. The gallery is free to the public and all are welcome.
