Perception / Abstraction : Steve Edson and Fern Nesson
March 20, 2020 - April 26, 2020
Pleased to announce a 2 person photography show at Beacon Gallery. Perception Abstraction is a two-artist show featuring works by Boston-based photographers Steven Edson and Fern L. Nesson. This photography exhibition seeks to explore these two artists’ diverse methods of looking through the viewfinder and electing what to capture on film, and how both create abstract artwork from the real-world viewfinder. From the mundane to the sublime, Edson and Nesson train their lenses on subjects familiar to all yet capture them in a way that allows for a new perspective and appreciation; revealing the artistry and beauty that surrounds us every day.
Together, these two artists bring to life a unique perspective on the world, inviting the viewer to take a second look at the world and to see the ways in which photography can become abstract artwork. Nesson and Edson capture the elegance and beauty of the quotidian: both in what the naked eye and only the camera can see.
March 20th -thru April 26,2020.
Opening reception: Friday April 3rd, 2020 from 6-8pm
Beacon Gallery, 524 B Harrison Ave, Boston, MA 02118
