Opening Reception for Wish Book: Lay of the Land with John Pearson

09/21/18
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Crosstown Arts, East Gallery, Crosstown Concourse, 1350 Concourse Ave.
Memphis, TN 38104 United States

Exhibition of photographic works by John Pearson
On view: Sept. 21-Nov. 30
Location: East Gallery & East Atrium

These large-scale, landscape cyanotypes on fabric link the tactile and the visual by committing the photographic process to the physical landscape. Pearson works outdoors on the ground, making 1:1 indexical photographic prints during midday sunlight. In these photographs, view is replaced by elemental record; while the horizon, removed from the composition, becomes the topographic support and source for construction of the images.

Pearson’s intention is not to convey the solely visual appearance of place — in this case, the arid southern California landscape — but rather to invoke a more dynamic experience of place by means of the transformative nature of photography.
