Galerie BMG is delighted to host "Continuum ", an exhibition of Lynn Bianchi's "Globe" and "Gold Leaf" collections. The images have a magical quality, created by the artist's unique use of light. In the Globe series, each photograph evokes silence and stillness, with a translucent light emanating from the center of the globe and bathing the figures in softness. In the Gold Leaf Collection, the unique sense of light is achieved by the artist transferring a silver gelatin photograph onto a transparency and gilding twice with 22-karat gold leaf. The result is an inner glowing light enveloping the figures.

According to the artist "the light represents our connection to the earth, each other, and the Universe. It becomes a continuum, making the viewer an integral part of each piece, moving the light continually in both directions, inside and out. In both series, a peaceful yet vigorous energy begins and ends at the same point, joining viewer and subject in a shared experience."
