The fragility of human existence was central to our exhibition, Decay Utopia Decay, at Portrait Society Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Focusing on our lives as collaborative artists and teachers having never been apart in more than 30 years, we increasingly understood our human bondage to the vulnerabilities of the body. Ultra large format, historical process photography directly relates this work to a continuum established by generations of photographers while indulging in a hand-made battle with material defying the contemporary fixation on the virtual. The exhibition ran November 9, 2012 – January 5, 2013, but many works remain available for viewing in the gallery’s archive room by request or appointment 414.870.9930.
