Portals to another world

Untitled (Portal Photograph) by Scott Treleaven
Treleaven builds a subtle dialogue beginning with the ‘portal photographs,’ which are created by refracting handmade dioramas through a series of lenses. Based on techniques pioneered by the early Symbolists, these almost painterly images present strangely formalized glimpses of glyphs and ciphers that gesture beyond what is merely “seen.” On view at the Silverman Gallery thru April 23, 2011
