||Deceit of the Intellect
June 16 - July 27, 2001
Benham Gallery is pleased to present an international collection of
unconventional portraits created by a talented group of inspiring
contemporary photographic artists.
Attending international photo festivals for the past 5 years, and reviewing
portfolios from artists worldwide, often we see themes emerge from
different artists photographing similar subject matter that compels us to
curate group exhibitions. Exploring unique approaches to the time honored
art of portraiture, "Deceit of the Intellect" will feature 14 of the
artists we discovered.
This exhibition will look beyond the face. By using collage techniques,
capturing portraits on television screens , enlarging 1930's prison
identity photos, these artists give the viewer an inner identity to the
person within the photograph and perhaps to themselves.
Photographers will include Bill Armstrong (New York City, NY), Maree
Azzopardi (Sydney, Australia), Davis Freeman (Seattle, WA), Clint Imboden
(Alameda, CA), Stuart Levy (Portland, OR), Philippe Pache (Lausanne,
Sweden), Luis Gonzalez Palma (Guatamala), Audrey Ray (San Francisco, CA),
Javier Lopez-Rotella (Mendoza, Argentina), Vincent Serbin (Woodstock, NY),
Rachel Simpson (Seattle, WA),Pablo Soria (Tucuman, Argentina), Warren Padula
(Sag Harbor, NY), and Jan Watten (Alameda, CA).
First Thursday opening - 5 July, 6pm - 8pm
