Opening: Saturday, Febrary 20, 5-7 PM
We are pleased to announce Sally Gall's second solo exhibition of recent black and white landscape photographs. Gall continues to work with a large square format. However a tendency towards finely detailed yet spatially ambiguous images, which began to appear in her work in 1987, has become extremely prominent. She has returned to working in European gardens, which she had shot with the diana in the early '80s, but now she is selecting wilder, more"disorganized" sites, as opposed to the earlier formal gardens. Exquisite print quality continues to be a hallmark of Falls approach to the medium.
The settings of Gall's recent work reflect her diverse activities over the past two years. The show includes work created during her residency last summer at the MacDowell Artist's Colony, in New Hampshire, as well as last fall in India where she was an official guest of the government. The images from the south of France grew out of an editorial assignment, and visits to Hawaii and Santa Barbara led to work which will also be included.
Since her last exhibition, Gall had a solo show in 1988 at the Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, Texas, and has appeared in numerous group shows, including the Swimmers show at Burden Gallery, and the Aperture book. She has done editorial work for House & Garden, Esquire, Avenue, and Texas Monthly magazines. Gall has also taught courses at the International Center of Photography, and the School of Visual Arts.
