Ari Marcopoulos: Abandoned Sleep @ Ratio 3 San FranciscoJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 14 Sep 2011
Renowned photographer, Ari Marcopoulos returns to San Francisco with Abandoned Sleep, a new series of photographs on display at Ratio 3. The exhibition is assembled around an installation of 34 abstract photographic images on newsprint, titled Infiltration.
Ratio 3 writes: Each unique image is both deliberate and experimental, created by layering multiple black and white images on top of other black and white images. The result is an inky black, velvety surface which push the boundaries of photo abstraction. Flanking this installation are several large scale black and white and color photographs; portraits, shadowy urban landscapes and dark multiple exposure abstractions that dramatize the nocturnal tableaux of the exhibit.
Abandoned Sleep is up through October 22, 2011.
