Out of the cabin rambunction of Los Angeles pandemic containment, the Brittany Davis Gallery’s Thinking of You Art Show demonstrates jovial relaxation in the artists efforts to permeate the sunlight once again. Stupendously, we have an overwhelming wallop of positivity versus melancholy, as this unfortunate natural catastrophe has invoked in many.
Richard Chow’s Visible Light 1 is a wonderful aim at melding a mastery of technique with idea. The cosmic blending, which occurs organically from the Cyanolumen photo-chemical processing to give us Mr. Chow’s own rendition of a “starry night”, scintillates when it lands directly on top of a humble prairieland farmer’s barn. This is veritably a natural formation, of the artists playfulness with light, but also confidence with the uncontrollable reactions which occur chemically. Perhaps this is where fine art photography continues to pave its way – diverging from the amateur toward demanding in the artist’s mind’s eye more and more danger and adventure in representing what can be gleaned from natural light. If only the size was much larger to deliver us more of an awe-inspiring burst!
