Julianne Swartz - Placement (Family)

Julianne Swartz is interested in capturing the infinite and she utilizes several techniques to accomplish the feat. The photographic works in this exhibit center on mirrors held against the horizon redirecting other areas of the landscape into the picture plane.

The sculptural works and photographs are not isolated from each other, there is a delightful crossover in the “Obscura” sculptures (below). Aided by a glass lens, the cylindrical plexiglass structure seizes the light before it and the scene floats inverted in a hazy mist.

Three boxes are also on display, each piece is like a music box. The original soundtrack is activated when visitors lift the lid. The object pictured below is titled “Flood” which may offer some insight as to the nature of the soundtrack. If you are in the Southwest head over to the gallery and find out for yourself.
