Bill Travis' New York


Flip through Weegee’s photos to see the city’s violent underbelly, or Berenice Abbott’s for razor-sharp views of the city’s canyons. Look to Michael Wesely for ghostlike, long-term exposures. When I look at Bill Travis’s work, I see something different and the closest parallels I can find are with photographs over a hundred years old.

"See Napoli and Die"


Art By Yevgeniya Baras

The artist’s childhood, with its tiny apartments and the lurking shadow of political oppression, demanded a closeness with others that was at once comforting and stifling. The memory of these situations and emotions is reflected in the density of Baras’ painted surfaces. Layers of pattern in the paintings, evoking old lace and textiles, often placed on a glowingly textured background, create airless and closed miniature worlds.

This series, interconnected and interrelated, proceeds in no specific order. Nor is there a "right side" to any one panel. Thus two panels together would have 16 possibilities, three 64, and on to infinite possible combinations. Is this what complexity and chaos are about?

In this particular series dice were rolled to determine both the orientation and the order of the panels.

Each panel in this series, rather than rectangle, is four-square (40"). This series, interconnected and interrelated, may proceed however in no specific order. Nor is there a "right side" to any one panel. Each individual panel possess four distinct possibilities. Two panels together would have 16 possibilities, and on to possibly infinite possible combinations. Infinite possibilities - is this what "complexity" and "chaos" is about?

In this particular series dice were rolled to determine both the orientation and the order of the panels.
