Atlanta, GA - Thursday, May 23, 6 – 9 pm. Atlanta based photographer, Shine Huang will reveal his new series of photographic work Interstellar at the opening reception of May Group Exhibition at Mason Fine Art Gallery.
Shine creates a series of photogram, revealing the ideas of culture and art beyond time and space. The galaxy like silver particles scattered on the giant black circle which floating in the square frame. That is a complexity of artist’s concept formation and culture practicing. In the Chinese folklore, people believe the universe is a circle and the ground are a square (flat). The “galaxy” is the result of the rice being manually grind in the mortar and pestle. With the pass of the time, the form of the rice changed from grain to refined powder. The powder and grain are carefully placed on the photographic paper in the darkroom then exposed to the light to make image. In this process of image making, time is highly involved, physically and conceptually. Time can change lots of things: the shape of the things, the form of the things, but the essential of the things will still be remained.
Additional, one edition from this series, Interstellar I, is also currently being installed in Shanghai Hubei Cinema, Shanghai, China. It will be shown to the public at the grand opening, that will be the same date as Mason Fine Art May Exhibition opening reception, on May 23.
This Exhibition is open to the public. Gallery Address: Manson Fine Art, 415 Plasters Ave, Atlanta, GA 30324
