Paintings and Photographs 2008-2016

April 22- May 28, 2016 

Opening Reception Saturday May 7, 5pm-7pm 

Michael Bisbee's paintings are part of an ongoing series of abstract paintings begun in 2008 shortly after moving to the desert of the Southwest from the East Coast. The series has a working title “Trouble at Sea” and comes from contemplating the sensation that making abstract painting in a remote New Mexican village is like assembling a serviceable raft from the wreckage of a ship far out at sea. The format has been limited to 20 X 14 inches, or assembled units of that dimension with most employing a horizon line.

The photographs in this exhibit are frontal studies of assembled sculptural objects. The images, shot out of focus, provide a certain anonymity to the subjects which contradicts the basic promise of the camera as a device designed to render the world in authoritative detail.
