Stephen Althouse: Transfigurations | Large-scale Photographic Works
January 18– April 7, 2018
Unframed, the large-scale photographic works by Pennsylvania native Stephen Althouse have the weight of sculpture, the medium in which he began as an artist. Through evocative lighting, starkness, and scale, Althouse transfigures humble, once-used objects of wood and iron – often farm tools – into objects of mystery for contemplation. Each scratch on a hand-worn surface, each crease in a linen drape, each accretion of rust, comes vibrantly alive.
