JERI EISENBERG

May 27 - June 27, 2005

 

 

Galerie BMG is pleased to present the work of Jeri Eisenberg, featuring intriguing manipulations of Polaroid SX-70 photographs. Jeri's photographs portray commonplace scenes transformed into patterns of color and shape, evoking a sense of stillness and serenity. She achieves her images by manipulating the soft emulsion in the Polaroid print, resulting in an image that is part photograph, part painting. These manipulations render everyday places and things strangely poetic and exquisitely beautiful...making the ordinary seem extraordinary.

"I am attracted to details. It's not the broad, sprawling vistas or cacophony of urban street life that catches my eye, but the still, quiet moments at home or encountered on my travels. My eye is pulled to the small parts of the picture: the curve of a palm frond; the weathered wood of a barn; the explosion of a yellow against a blue. I used to practice law and found, then, that "the devil was in the details'. But I knew that the divine resided there too. And I much prefer spending my time searching for glimpses of the divine."
