John Folsom ::: FIXED FOCUS
opening reception First Friday, Feb. 5, 6 – 9pm
exhibition runs through Saturday, Feb. 29, 2016

Blue Gallery is pleased to announce John Folsom FIXED FOCUS.

Fixed Focus is a new series of work that explores the nature of impermanence through the use of transparency and found photographs. Selected images are scanned, represented on acrylic and combined with oil paint and other wet media. Dislodged from their origins, these images take on significance as documents of time and references of personal experience. The transparency of the surface gives the viewer access, penetrating the veil of perception to ponder the illusory nature of reality. The title, Fixed Focus, refers to the first cameras introduced by Kodak in 1900 with a fixed focus lens. This technology gave rise to the notion of the snapshot and photographs that were more spontaneous. This series seeks to present the nature of reality as fragments, moments of consciousness that make up our seamless existence.

John Folsom (b. 1967) is a mixed media artist born and raised in Paducah, Kentucky. In 1990 he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Cinema and Photography from Southern Illinois University. His practice demonstrates the narrative potential of images through the intersection of painting and photography.

Represented by Blue Gallery since 2000, Folsom’s photographic paintings have been widely exhibited for the past 20 years and can be found in private, corporate, and museum collections worldwide. Select collections include Hunter Museum of American Art, Chattanooga, TN, The Four Seasons, Washington, DC, RCA Records, Nashville, TN, and Sprint Communications Inc., Overland Park, KS.
