The exhibit opened Nov. 8 with an artist’s reception.
Gearon, an Atlanta native now living in Los Angeles, is a contemporary artist who had gained both noted critical and commercial recognition in the U.S. and abroad for her powerful and intense color photographs. Her new series revolves around the subject of color and shape whereupon the artist builds on site handmade vibrant colored Plexiglass structures in picturesque landscapes, snow-toped mountains, urban streets and neighborhoods.
Known for her use of incorporating her children and their friends into her work, “COLORSHAPE” captures her subjects, literally, suspended in a moment, in the multi-color plexi-shaped sculptures. It also transports both the subject and viewer to another world from the familiar to the unknown strange land of encased children and animals in prisms of reflecting color.
Gearon was thrust into the spotlight in 2001 when her work was featured as one of the main photographers in the famed “I Am A Camera” exhibition at Saatchi Gallery in London. She has been exhibited at many prominent galleries and museums.
