Photographs and video pieces by Mr. Gary Wahl and Ms. Anne Hennen Barber will be on display in ASU’s Fine Arts Gallery through September 29.
Mr. Wahl is an assistant professor of art at Albion College in Albion, Mich., where he has taught photography, computer arts, digital imagery, and sculpture. He has had more than 20 solo and group exhibitions in galleries around the country. His work, which he says focuses on “the seams between urban and rural landscapes,” examines those areas where the landscape is in transition.
“I like to view my own culture through a conceptual filter that shifts its central focus from commerce to religion,” says Mr. Wahl. “Through this filter, all infrastructures, highways, power lines, storm drainage and so forth, appear as fixtures of an extensive spiritual network.”
Mr. Wahl earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota, a master’s degree from the University of Iowa, and a Master of Fine Arts degree, also from the University of Iowa.
Also a faculty member at Albion College, Ms. Barber teaches photography and also specializes in film production. She has had 14 exhibitions and screenings in numerous galleries around the country. In addition to her photography collections, Ms. Barber has won many awards for her films.
“Filmmaking is the medium that I most often use to translate my ideas into a tangible form,” says Ms. Barber. “I am interested in the nature of film as a linear progression of images. Working with a time-based medium allows me to withhold and reveal to the viewer. A single frame of film, holding both image and sound, may be revealed and transformed by what comes after it; juxtaposing with another image and/or sound to alter meaning. This in turn can affect the next image or cycle back to recall a previous form. In this way, film forms a cascading series of composition that is at once sculptural, painterly, and textual.”
Ms. Barber received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin.
An artist’s reception will be held on Wednesday, September 28, from 5-7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery. For more information, contact Ms. Pamela Ferguson-Haggins, gallery director, at 737-1453.
