Kathleen Gerdon Archer: The Mapmaker's Dream

17 May – 14 Jun 2008

In "The Mapmaker's Dream", Archer reflects on times of transition, attempting to capture the space between when one reality morphs into the next. By shooting through a rain-washed lens, Archer is able to transform her photographs into painterly abstractions. As if recounting a dream or memory from long ago, the details fade into broad washes of color and a sense of space is barely apparent, yet the images are potent with sensations of the moment - melancholy, yearning, and meditation.
