Dean Kessmann, Untitled (Wisconsin House #2)
Conner Contemporary Art takes great pleasure in announcing our 10th anniversary. We are especially pleased to celebrate our first decade with concurrent solo exhibitions of new work by three gallery artists: Erik Thor Sandberg, Dean Kessmann and Isaac Maiselman.
Dean Kessmann furthers his exploration of unusual ways of seeing familiar architectural spaces in Architectural Intersections, his third solo exhibition with the Gallery. In this new series of photographs the artist rediscovers the simple delight an imaginative world inspired by childhood memories of lying on his back and looking at the ceiling upside-down. Kessmann photographed his current apartment with a large-format view camera, focusing on points where off-white walls meet an off-white ceiling to define the shape of a room, at corners, as well as at junctures with encased supports and conduits. Kessmann's elegant minimal images challenge preconceptions about gravity and light as they evoke the plasticity of abstract forms. Catalogue available with essay by Karen Irvine, curator, The Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, IL.
