Jan Meissner is an unconventional photographer who captures what she sees in the world, then transposes it with painterly intelligence into complex images of what she saw in her seeing. She photographs for the edge between what she knows and what she cannot know. She shoots for the separation between what surrounds her and what moves her. She frames for edges just out of sight, shadows of life too blurred, too confused, too nuanced for language to hold. She shoots for the ungrammatical mystery of silence.
Richard Nonas is an idiosyncratic sculptor who lives in a rigorously philosophical world characterized by sharp simplicity. He uses objects to make places. — A place, he says, is a site, an already existent entity; a vibrating whole always more abstract and ambiguous, more complex and diffuse, than a single object or person can be.
