Winsor Gallery is pleased to present new works by Bill Anderson, December 8 - January 7, 2012.
“These photographs – interpretations of common things encountered during my local meanderings – are informed by my interest in the historical narrative of art, shifting cultural values, and a landscape that encompasses not only nature, but the fabricated places that cover it, and butt up against it. They are an attempt to reveal the remarkable in a well mapped world.” - Bill Anderson
The force behind creating Bill Anderson's images was born out of a desire to harmonize elements often avoided in the search for a perfect, or untroubled brand of beauty, and to explore examples of the individual's interaction with the environment. What we're capable of for the sake of profit and industrial progress is well known to the environment, but what motivates the timeless habit of leaving our, often intimate, and primitively creative marks behind on any surface conducive to the task?
With aesthetics being a primary concern, and to overcome the mechanical limitations of a more conventional photographic approach, it was often necessary to re-establish spacial, tonal, and color relationships, by interpreting each important element separately. And so, once reconstructed, the paradoxes of near and far, the manufactured and the organic, the transient and the immutable, combined to create a new context and, hopefully, a heightened sense of place.
