Ellen Lee Exhibits Photographs at Peninsula Art Institute
The Peninsula Art Institute presents a duo exhibit, Natural Visions, featuring the work of photographers Kay Podolsky and Ellen Lee. This exhibit, to be held in the Peninsula Art Institute Gallery, 1777 California Drive, Burlingame, CA, runs from May 15 through June 22. There will be a reception open to the public on Sunday, May 18 from 1-4pm
Photography is continuously evolving with new and diverse techniques and treatments. This exhibition explores how different photographic images can offer new perspectives on photographic art – two artists revealing the parallels between their distinctive visions.
Ellen says, “Working abstractly could impact an image’s meaning. Looking for beauty in the ordinary and spotlighting fragmentation in most of my work, the curious are compelled to contemplate the reason for their visual impression”.
Kay says, “Augmenting reality to entice the viewer to “feel” the 3-dimensional image requires a knowledge of perspective and the use of technology to produce my work. The images have a tactile quality a 2-dimensional photo can only approximate. Their construction can go beyond reality as when a cat’s paw reaches out of the mat and dares the viewer to pet it; or a tulip lowers its blossom to show the interior of its cup”.
