To celebrate its 40th year anniversary, photo-eye organized its first-ever juried exhibition with an international open call for artwork relating to the concept fractured. Artists were asked to be broadly creative in interpreting the theme, as it might relate to our seemingly broken world, politics, society, identity, or emotional states of being. Applicants were also charged with exploring art’s role as a way to bridge personal and social divides in our fractured times. The gallery received an immense amount of work, which covered a wide range of topics.

The exhibition was juried by the photo-eye Gallery staff, and out of thousands of submissions, 25 artists were selected for the exhibition.

The artists exhibited in Fractured are: Charles Anselmo, Tom Atwood, Edward Bateman, David Paul Bayles, Jo Ann Chaus, Heidi Cost, Kelly Cowan, Lauren Davies, Monica Denevan, K.K. DePaul, Marcus DeSieno, Virgil DiBiase, Peter Essick, Jon Feinstein, Meg Griffiths, Jennifer Steensma Hoag, Ruth Lauer Manenti, William Lesch, Christine Lorenz, Marie Maher, Jennifer McClure, Daniel McCullough, Leigh Merrill, JP Terlizzi, and Ira Wagner.

Opening night for Fractured

Within Fractured, lay a very diverse exhibition of work that considered “fractures” both literal and from perspectives a bit more nebulous. Jo Ann Chaus mysteriously examined the concept of fractured identities in her bold, psychologically captivating self-portraiture, while the photographs of grafted tree species by David Paul Bayles are a direct representation of man-made fractures in our agricultural environment. There are fresh, unexpected takes on materials, as seen in Lauren Davies’ deconstructed blanket works, which push the boundaries of how a photograph can exist — in this case, as a fractured, deconstructed object. The show also featured exciting explorations into alternative analog photography techniques, like the physical alterations Daniel McCullough makes to his film before exposing it, which creates chance interactions between his mark-making and imagery.
