JUDY D. SHANE

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
April 26 – May 17, 2016
Reception: Thursday, April 28, 2016 6-8 PM

Judy D. Shane's multi-layered photography explores the making of the visual: why and how we see what we see. Her photographic composites of individually sculpted paint strokes are captured with a macro lens, allowing every detailed groove and pearlescent gleam on the surface of the paint to be revealed. Her photography is as crisp and efficient as her paint is luxurious and tactile. She lays the paint in varying shapes and thicknesses, seeking a three-dimensional realism and compositional order that incite queries into color, light, and figure/ground relationships.

By photographing paint this way, Shane transforms what should be merely the building block of a picture into a fully realized image in its own right. She reveals to her audience the details that are never seen with the naked eye, and asks us to think beyond the conventional separation of photography and the traditional art of painting.

Shane lives and keeps a studio in Vancouver, Canada. Her work is informed by her fifteen years as a respected visual effects compositor for film and television.
