Yosemite: Seeking Sublime
Yosemite: Seeking Sublime
Photographs and 3D Printed Landscapes by Edward Bateman

Now showing online! View Exhibition

Awe-inspiring, enigmatic, and alluring, Bateman's distinctive prints, created by photographing 3D models, are thoroughly contemporary in their concept and methodology. Produced during the ongoing pandemic and with limited possibility of travel, Bateman crafted the work using geographical data and a 3D printer. The artist's unique process yields captivating, abstract images depicting plastic filaments that explore the concept of the sublime through representations of the majestic landscapes of Yosemite National Park.

"Mountains and nature have long been places of peace and refuge. During this pandemic, due to lockdown and quarantine, they have been denied to us. There are few emotions about places for which adequate single words exist. At the beginning of the eighteenth century, the word sublime arose to describe the feelings that the natural world can evoke.

On my kitchen table, I have been photographing the grandeur of Yosemite National Park, long immortalized by photographers from Carleton Watkins to Ansel Adams. Using geographical data from the internet, I used my 3D printer to try to capture something of the sublime in bits of plastic. With clouds from a small fog machine, I create atmospheric perspective.

This will have to do until we are once again allowed to travel freely. Until that time, I will continue to explore this imaginary landscape."—Edward Bateman

Jennifer Greenburg: Revising History

Greenburg challenges social norms and the nature of vernacular photographs in her ongoing series Revising History. Seamlessly interjecting herself in mid-century images from the 1940's – 60's, Greenburg creates convincing counterfeit moments liberating the pictures from reality and reminding us of photography's fragile relationship with the truth. Revising History's imagery is exceptionally sharp with a sly sense of humor, while also touching on issues in today's culture and political climate in America.

"I illustrate the roles women typically found themselves in, in a past era, allegorically in order to identify that though things look different today, not enough has changed."
—Jennifer Greenburg
