In Focus: Hidden In Plain Sight Opens Tonight with BAXTTER ST at CCNY

Detail and contrast are two distinct components of any striking image. No artist demonstrates this better than Patricia Voulgaris, whose solo show, Hidden in Plain Sight, opens tonight in partnership with the BAXTER ST at CCNY (126 Baxter Street in Manhattan). Patricia’s body of work, focused on memories and their eventual abstraction and fragmentation over time, shows an affinity for minutiae and negative space. There is a subtlety implicit in the works that make it difficult to refrain from examining the details of her work.

Voulgaris is participating as a 2014 Workspace Resident with BAXTER ST at CCNY, who iss presenting this solo exhibit to reflect the artists’ current practice of manipulating images in Photoshop and mimicking postproduction practices. This practice creates a space for the artists’ hand to be a part of the photographic process in a digitalized manner. Space and contrast are characters rather than processes in Voulgaris work, creating playful compositions that reverberate with notions of representation in two dimensional space.
