Featuring new work by local artists:
DAN McMANUS and ALEXANDER NESBITT
Our newest collection will show you new ways of seeing and new places to discover
Opening Reception Saturday, June 23rd, 6-9pm
DISCOVERED will include new photographic works from local favorite Alexander Nesbitt and for the first time at Blink Gallery, we will feature Rhode Island native Dan McManus with his large framed digital images of 1960’s plastic bird models.
Dan’s images are the result of making photographs without a camera in a process he simply calls camera-less photography. Stating “I am trying not to think, but instead respond to a subject,” Dan arranges small novelties on a scanner bed with tape, balance, experimentation and a thoughtful editing process. The scans become the basis for his artwork. Printed at a large scale the subjects are completely transformed, hovering in the dark, part kitsch, part macabre–with a nod to the primordial birder in all of us.
The exhibition will be on view until mid-July, 2018. Check our contact page for currently gallery hours.
