Alex Cassetti: Bending Light
From the artist:
I am excited to announce that my solo show Bending Light will be showing at CEPA Gallery from April 7th – May 5th. The opening reception will be this Friday 4/7 from 5-8pm. I will be presenting my graduate thesis work from my time studying at the University at Buffalo.
Bending Light is a selection of images from my own collection of film negatives accumulated over the past 12 years. The process involves selecting, photographing, and in many cases re-photographing so that the two-dimensional source print (or film negative) is shaped into three-dimensional form before finally being printed onto a large sheet of inkjet transparency.
This produces undulating transparent surfaces and casts shadows on the wall behind, which together create mesmerizing effects with their double images.
Hope to see you there.
