Celia Pearson’s Layerings | A Glimpse of Southeast Asia
Profoundly touched by the rich and layered cultures she glimpsed during two trips to Southeast Asia, photographer Celia Pearson felt challenged to stretch beyond her usual way of working.
Layerings joins traditional prints with photomontages and prints on rice paper and silks. Some works are large scale, and all are deliberately unframed, which lends a sense of immediacy and fluidity and invites us to experience the work in a more intimate way.
Pearson is a lifelong artist. Years of practice as a nationally recognized and published assignment photographer led to a focus on her own work in 2001. Exhibits in galleries and museums followed, and now Pearson’s works are in many private and several corporate and museum collections.
Join us for an opening reception celebrating this exhibition, with an artist talk.
