Faculty Spotlight: PhotoExhibition by Prof.Andrea Schwartz Massalski

“Local Trees”
Photography Exhibition by Professor Andrea Schwartz Massalski

Andrea Schwartz Massalski

Please join Andrea Schwartz Massalski for a solo exhibition of her photographic series titled LOCAL TREES. This series was done over a few years living between Capitola, CA and Berlin, Germany. The work represents a conceptual idea of place and beauty. Blaise Rosenthal wrote about these photographs, “Massalski’s impulse to isolate begets a process of composition based on editing, involving removal and emphasis, that demands that formal considerations are taken into account. But what allows these images to succeed beyond simple pleasantly or formal exercise is the unique combinations of contrasting aspects that coexist within them. The photographs express both an innocent earnestness as well as a wry and deadpan sense of humor. They seem to be the product of an intense curiosity restrained by the resolve to neglect and resist interruption into their space.”

Andrea would be happy to greet you at the show. Please contact her if you would like to join her at the gallery to view and discuss the work in person. Contact: am@andreamassalski.com
