On April 28th photo-eye Gallery was delighted to open Warm Regards, an exhibition featuring recent and iconic works by seminal Finnish photographer Pentti Sammallahti. To compliment Pentti's rich traditional silver-gelatin prints, the gallery is also featuring color work by represented artists Maggie Taylor, Chaco Terada, and Maria Luisa Morando. While Sammallahti's precise yet whimsical style serves to document connections and eccentricities in the world around us Taylor, Terada, and Morando's imagery functions more internally focusing instead on the power of symbolic narrative, meditation, and minimalist dream-like contemplation to yield personal reflection.

Warm Regards and all accompanying works are on view through Saturday, June 24th, 2017 at photo-eye Gallery.

"For a little more than 20 years now I have been using a flatbed scanner instead of a traditional camera to record and interpret the objects I collect. I frequent flea markets, searching for old tintypes and toys that seem to have a story to tell. Then in my studio I make small pastel drawings as backgrounds and scan each element into my computer separately. Using Photoshop I am able to arrange and play with these layers in much the same way that I worked with objects in my studio for a still life photograph. I work very spontaneously and intuitively, trying to come up with images that have a resonance and a somewhat mysterious narrative content. There is no one meaning for any of the images, rather they exist as a kind of visual riddle or open-ended poem, meant to be both playful and provocative. " — Maggie Taylor

Chaco Terada

Three new works by Chaco Terada installed in photo-eye Gallery's tower entryway


photo-eye Gallery is thrilled to debut three new unique works by Chaco Terada alongside Warm Regards.

Terada’s work addresses notions of light, time, and space – but in a completely unique fashion. Printed on two layered silk screens bound and separated by mats, her images literally hold light and space within the picture. Quiet and contemplative, the image changes ever so slightly as you move around it, reacting in space, and allowing cherry blossoms to flutter, water to ripple, and brushstrokes to float as if in air or on water.

Maria Luisa Morando

Four works from Maria Luisa Morando's White series installed at photo-eye Gallery.
“With her cool gelato colors and sunlight reflected off the sand and celadon waves, she evokes fond memories of summer days. Because of the lack of sharp detail, it becomes impossible to explore the images for their specificity, and instead, they open up and play to any seaside memory the viewer cares to pour into them. In “Camera Lucida” Roland Barthes referred to photographic details that create an intense, personal response, as the punctum. For images that are essentially punctum-free, Morando moves out of the way, allowing the viewer to find their own point of entry into the briny blur.” — Michael Buitron for ArtScene Magazine
"By overexposing in the camera, my world becomes clutter free, to be able to experience the moment and therefore really see it, feel it and connect with it. It is as if by removing the clutter, the viewer is freed up to respond to the work as if they can hear the image. It is though by removing the surplus detail, the other senses can come into play, making it easier to hear the waves, feel the heat of the sunlight and taste the salt air." — Maria Luisa Morando
Morando's works in the exhibition are 20x20 inch C-prints beautifully floated in white frames. Prints at this size are available in limited editions of 10 – please contact the gallery for current prices.
