Transitions: Food of the Youths, Ripple Wave Shadow, and Ashes
The Dark Room photography gallery opens the 2018 Exhibition Season with Transitions: Food of the Youths, Ripple Wave Shadow, and Ashes, a three-series exhibition featuring new works by Tasha Nicolé Burton.
Transitions – Tasha is currently in a transition and so is her work. As she progresses from one chapter to the next in her professional life, the three bodies of work evolves in a way that displays detachment and junction simultaneously.
Food of the Youths – This photostory is a brief look at a larger series on the snacks provided to the school children near the artist’s residence. Daily, what’s left behind in the school’s field changes and becomes integrated into a new environment.
Ashes – Activated charcoal with its heaviness and its complete darkness gets manipulated by strokes of a tiny spoon on wood and marble canvases creating starkness, separation and balance.
Ripple Wave Shadow – It is impossible to recreate the same pattern as speed, motion, thickness and tools develop the differences from one batch to the next. This group is a study in sacred geometry and its complexities.
