I’m excited to announce I will have an installation in the CSPS Commons gallery! This show, A City by Dark, is my second installation at this historic art venue in the NewBo district in Cedar Rapids.
A City By Dark is a study of cityscapes in Cedar Rapids through a different lens than most see it. Many of the scenes I’ve photographed are things we walk past everyday without a second thought, but at night they take on a different life. I was initially drawn to this in the mid-2000s. I was working second shift and found myself spending a lot of time walking late at night. I started to see the city differently than I did during the day. The night gave a quiet stillness to the city that juxtaposes nicely with modern day life. The limited light brought depth and contrast that was missing during the day.
This is the first time that this body of work has been exhibited anywhere. In 2018 I had two installations, but both were of my music work. It’s great to be able to show off something a little different, and at such a great local venue!
The work will be up through the end of November. All the work is for sale through the CSPS box office.
