JAN GROOVER: STILL LIFES
Working exclusively in photography, Jan Groover’s photographs are a touchstone of formalist art. Working both in color and platinum-palladium, she made “a laboratory of forms.” The exhibition will be changing throughout its duration, in order to exhibit more images. This famous series of color photographs possess an elegance as fresh as it was when it was first shown in the 1970s. At that time, the 16” x 20” chromogenic color prints were considered “big pictures,” and today, they still remain the backbone of Groover’s formalist approach to photography where the mundane transforms into the magical.
