Not Long Hidden
Rick Wester Fine Art
January 23 – March 1
Single-handedly punching back at winter, Rick Wester Fine Art has mounted an invitingly warm group-exhibition celebrating the tactual essence of summer featuring some excellent surf imagery from our great friend, Joni Sternbach (among others).
Joni Sternbach: 13.08.29 #53 Lisa + Mikey, Ditch Plains, Montauk, 2013
30 x 40 archival pigment print
From the gallery’s press release:
In the midst of the coldest winter in New York in 20 years it seems that no amount of freezing sunshine, Vitamin D or dry radiator heat can overcome the chill of the wind off the Hudson, East or Harlem Rivers. Rick Wester Fine Art is pleased to present a visual antidote to Seasonal Affective Disorder with NOT LONG HIDDEN, a group exhibition that combines the work of five photographers who have explored and incorporated into their work a highly visceral and sensual vision of summer light, color and tone. Kate Joyce (Chicago, IL), Jakub Karwowski (Krakow), Joe Maloney (Hancock, NY), Cheryle St. Onge (Durham, NH) and Joni Sternbach (Brooklyn, NY) all share unique sensibilities towards how radiant light shapes their imagery. Like music that transforms auditory sensation into emotion and action, the photographers of NOT LONG HIDDEN create the sensory equivalent of stopping, mid – step on a summer’s day, to take in the color and absorb its warmth. Each pursues distinctly different subject matter and approaches, however all dwell within the realm of the documentary photograph with remarkably individual results .

Bill Armstrong: From the Infinity series: Renaissance #1005
40 x 48 optically enlarged c-print
Bill Armstrong’s Renaissance images are part of an extensive body of work called the Infinity Series and are aptly named after a crucial aspect of the creative process where he rephotographs found images with his focusing ring set at infinity.Armstrong’s appropriated material is subjected to a variety of physical manipulations – photocopying, cutting, painting, rephotographing and the extreme de-focusing that enables him to blend and distill hues – all of which contribute to transform the originals and give them new meaning in a new context.
LTI-Lightside produced six conventionally enlarged 40″ x 48″ c-prints for this exhibition.
