Corkin Gallery is pleased to present new video animations and prints by Sharon Switzer.
March 24 - April 24, 2012
Opening Reception: Saturday March 24, 2-5pm
Nearly Present imagines the otherworldly beauty of the ethereal. In this new body of work, Sharon Switzer experiments with particle systems, using this commercial software to create unusual and evocative animations. The work also touches on the artist's earlier interests in the relationship between photography and the invisible: ghosts, time, things that photography shouldn't be allowed to capture but does.
In this work, nearly present is the disembodied space of the digital and the virtual that exists unseen around us. Forgoing the ironic humour intrinsic to previous bodies of work, Switzer has created mesmerizing, ethereal videos that have no need for language. This work hovers just outside of the known world, like ghosts caught in the machine.
