One of the many things that I admire about David H. Gibson is his attention to craftsmanship.  Not only does David make stunning prints, but objects as well. For years David has been creating handmade LTD books – and recently, for our exhibition,  a 116x27” Japanese inspired scroll.  This free flowing paper scroll spans a half an hour of time and displays a quite x-mas eve morning spent on the Texas Gulf Coast watching the sunrise - which never gets old.

When experiencing Chaco Terada’s work I enjoy getting lost between the layers of silk that make up the compositions. The journey is quiet and contemplative – like a poem. Ever since I was a small child I have been fascinated with fish, so I can’t help but love that in this suite of images a white koi participates in the meditation. The individual images are very strong on their own, but this pair makes a lovely diptych!

Sunrise, August 26, 8:26 AM, Eagle Nest Lake, NM, Toned Gelatin-Silver Print, 14x4" Image, Edition of 25, $400
© David H. Gibson

I adore Sunrise, August 26 by David Gibson for its balance, richness, and serenity. Absent of land or horizon, the scene is a paradox. It feels both dense and thick while remaining ungrounded, pinned by a pair of twin suns and anchored only by a wreath of reeds.

There, the Opening 3, 2017, Sumi Ink and Pigment Ink on Silk, 10x7" Image, $1200, © Chaco Terada 
I love how Chaco Terada uses layers in her work to create an experience and cultivate meaning. In There, the Opening 3, Terada lays her gorgeous calligraphic text atop a pair of transparent images literally giving the viewer three distinct perspectives to consider within a single work. For me, the effect is powerful and mesmerizing, as if Terada has manifested a visual representation of a personal rumination.

Water Plant Lace, Colorado Rocky Mountains, CO, Toned Gelatin-Silver Print, 5x13" Image, Edition of 25, $400
Water Plant Lace, Colorado Rocky Mountains by David H. Gibson is a timeless slice of heaven. Reminiscent of Monet’s “Water Lilies”, this gorgeous silver print is the perfect backdrop for any Romantic. The image is slightly abstract, offers lush texture, and also serves as a reminder to take a closer look to appreciate nature’s profound beauty.

Introspection H 2, Chaco Terada, Sumi Ink and Pigment Ink on Silk, 12x8" Image, $1500
When spending a few moments with this exquisite Chaco Terada photograph on silk, I find peace as I stare into a glimpse of the artist’s own quiet introspection, as the title suggests. While I join her on the journey of looking inward, I can feel the waves gently rocking back and forth and imagine their sound to be something like a lullaby.
