GABRIELE GOLISSA

Emerging Visions
January 21 - February 10, 2017
Reception: Thursday January 26, 2017 6-8 PM

Most conversions take place in churches or temples, but Gabriele Golissa found new purpose in the plush seat of an Airbus A380. Born in Dusseldorf, Germany, she had earned degrees in both business administration and disease prevention and health management. In 2014, on a trip from Frankfurt to Beijing, Golissa was overcome by a sunset. As her fellow passengers focused on the inflight movie, she took out her camera and began clicking away. It was the start of something new.
 
Golissa has since relocated to Montana, a state whose nickname, she points out, is “Big Sky Country.” Photographing from both ground and air, Golissa insists on depicting the sky as she sees it, experimenting with aperture and shutter speed as well as image composition while declining to alter her work after the fact. She often places her prints beneath a thick acrylic glass, adding depth and brilliancy to the image, bringing the sky back to life. She has lately begun printing on aluminum and canvas, surfaces that allow her to play, respectively, with color and softness. “I never tire of skies,” Golissa says. “They are never the same. No rationality, only feeling.”
