Installation view of Michael Kenna's Abruzzo prints in the Winter Group Show

A pair of snow-covered railroad tracks, 12 skeletal beach umbrellas, the ruins of a 13th-century farm – each of Michael Kenna's images in the Winter Group Show serve to show human being's relationship with our environment over time. Each scene's subdued atmosphere, dynamic construction, and vacant silence prompts a moment of reverence and reflection from the viewer.

photo-eye Galley was excited to open the 2018 Winter Group Show last weekend during the Railyard Arts District's Last Friday Art Walk. Among the six artists on view, we are proud to feature 5 recent works by Michael Kenna from the Abruzzo region in southern Italy. Kenna's five 8x8" black-and-white images are indicative of his signature minimalist style and desire to commune with a place rather than capture it.
