Photographer Richard Misrach has become one of the most influential artists of his generation, mostly thanks to the swashbuckling ambition of his large-scale environmental landscapes of sea and desert. But among aficionados of photographic tech, he’s also revered for his pioneering early adoption of color film as a tool of fine art. With this new series, Misrach returns to those heady days of palette experimentation. First turning his hyper-focused lens to details of the desert landscape, teasing lines and details toward an abstract expressivity the gallery compares to Pollock, he then interpretively manipulates the color spectrum, bringing the work even deeper into the parallel world of painting. Exhibition continues through Jan. 17, Tue.-Sat., 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
Sat., Nov. 22, 6-8 p.m., 2014
