ABOUT THE EXHIBITION


photo-eye Gallery is thrilled to announce Ancient Kingdoms, a solo exhibition of black-and-white platinum prints by renowned photographer Beth Moon. Ancient Kingdoms corresponds with the release of Moon’s fourth monograph Literary Chickens, a series of heritage-breed chicken portraits paired with literary excerpts published by Abbeville Press. An exhibition opening, artist reception, and book signing event will take place on Friday, September 28 from 5–7 pm during the Last Friday Art Walk in Santa Fe’s Railyard Arts district. Ancient Kingdoms will remain on view through Saturday, November 24, 2018.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Ancient Kingdoms presents a collection of platinum prints by Beth Moon spanning nearly two decades of work and images from four discrete projects. Portraits of Time depicts the grace and endurance of ancient trees, Thy Kingdom Come focuses on totem-like beliefs and practices connecting man to animal, Odin’s Cove celebrates natural beauty and a sense of place through an extended portrait of two ravens, and Augurs and Soothsayers is a series of intimate hen portraits confronting our removed relationship with animals.

Thy Kingdom Come

 Platinum/Palladium Print, 
20x16" Image, 3/25, $2800
While the subject matter varies widely from tree portraits to a spiritual journey, the overarching themes of Moon’s work including humanity’s relationship with nature, a fascination with time, resilience, and survival serve to unify the exhibition. In essence, Moon images utilize the history of the plant and animal kingdoms to ask beautiful questions about our relativity to nature while challenging us to respect and acknowledge our place within the greater lifecycle – one which both precedes us and will outlast our time on earth. Subtle but triumphant, Moon’s prints often evoke a primal ache, a sense of wistful wonder, and an urge to connect with the wild.
