Denise Bibro Fine Art presents Water Play, color photography by Roslyn Meyer. The exhibition has been extended through April 16th, 2011. In her homage to the transformative powers of water, Meyer offers two distinct series of images: one exploring hushed reflective surfaces, the other harnessing the forceful tumult of surf.
Meyer’s lens plays on the surface of soft undulating ripples; reflecting sky, flora and fauna, as well as the man-made world. These abstract images are chameleon-like, masquerading as psychedelic Pop art, television static, and even the stripes of a zebra. But look closer, and one picks out a stone, the leaf of a tree, or the architectural detail of a building. In her reflections, Meyer animates a tranquil world. Alternatively, in her study of breaking waves, movement is interrupted, and crashing surf becomes a silent, crystalline glacier. Investigating the tension between surface and depth, motion and stillness, realism and abstraction, Meyer’s complex, layered images at once reveal and conceal the nature of their subject.
Meyer's work has previously been shown at venues including Denise Bibro Fine Art, New York, NY; A Leaf Photography Studio and Gallery, New Haven, CT; Kennedy Studios, Martha’s Vineyard, MA; and the Guilford Art Center, Guilford, CT. Her work is held in the collection of the Yale University School of Medicine, as well as many private collections.
