Hovering, Photographs at the Boundaries of Nature

Lois Lambert Gallery

Bergamot Station 2525 Michigan Ave. E-3, Santa Monica, 90404

6:00pm to 9:00pm

Lois Lambert Gallery presents “Hovering, Photographs at the Boundaries of Nature” a collection of digital photographs by Gregg Wilensky. The show opens March 14 and shows through May 10.

Wilensky’s work explores the line between abstraction and realism emphasizing the emotive by abstracting the landscape with its color forms and lines. In this body of photographs Wilensky uses the digital dark room to help stimulate an emotional response by controlling the abstraction of the landscape to further project the essence of the photograph. Wilensky uses his knowledge of low level visual processing, akin to what a primitive creature from the Edicaran period six hundred million years ago might have seen, and asks; “What would we perceive today if we could more vividly visualize our low level neural processes?”
As a Senior Principle Scientist at Adobe, Gregg has played a key roll in developing dozens of features in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and After Effects.
