Juror: Carl Chiarenza

Cameras are terrific tools for telling stories about the world.  But they can also capture abstract designs based on pattern, texture, light, or color.  For this exhibition, juror Carl Chiarenza selected forty photos for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont.  He also chose an additional thirty-five photos for the gallery’s “Online Annex.”  All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalog available for purchase.

Abstract Expressions, Juror's Statement:
 
Jurying the work submitted for Abstract Expressions was difficult because too many photographs were winners.  Too many had to be cut to reach 75; and no easier was the task of separating the 75 into groups of 40 and 35. As difficult as it was, it was also rewarding. While all photographs (and music, and the other arts) are both abstractions and expressions, those that draw us away from referential objects in the world toward stimulating our imaginations hold and exercise our own creativity. Such experiences are as unique as are the artists’ gifts. Thank you participants for giving us a moving, wide-ranging set of emotional, mental and physical experiences! And, thank you for reminding us that abstraction and expression are not limited to a brief moment in history.  

Carl Chiarenza, March, 2012
