Gallery 1855 at the Davis Cemetery Presents:
MARCH 2014:Joseph Finkleman's Yesteryear and Never Was
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ~ Albert Einstein
Joseph Finkleman, a versatile artist with both the watercolor brush and the camera, beckons us into a dreamy world of ‘yesteryear’ and ‘never was’ in his latest series. Finkleman has shown both straight watercolors and straight photographs at Gallery 1855 in previous years. Now, in yet another creative iteration, Finkleman blends his two mediums, printing black & white photographic images on watercolor paper and then painting them. The result is a series of unique images that speak deeply to the unconscious.
Finkleman, who holds both a B.A. and an M. A. from the San Francisco Art Institute, has been showing for over 40 years. His is a restless creativity, morphing continually through the years, from creating paper puppets, casting their shadows on interesting surfaces and photographing the result, to twisting portable Mylar sheets to capture and photograph the reflections, to his vibrant complex watercolors. In this series he takes yet another turn, capturing the apparently ordinary and somehow turning it into the iconic.
