Artist News, Robbert Flick Lecture: "Time as Footstep" at the Portland Art Museum

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.


Robbert Flick, SV 008/80, Manhattan Beach Looking North From Marine, 1980.

Robbert Flick is widely regarded as a pioneer in California landscape and documentary photography. His photographs examine our relationship to landscape through a unique process of mapping with a camera. His images look at the intersection of time and space, and build on a unique visual language the artist has developed over the last 50 years. Flick will share reflections on his long-standing photographic practice and consider how changes in time, place, and technology affect his image making.

Event is a part of the Alan Ostrow Memorial Lecture Series and will take place on 23 March from 6:30-7:30pm

Featuring works by twenty artists from our gallery roster, Passing Through pays homage to the transience of all things and the power of the photographer to immortalize experience with the click of the camera shutter. The exhibition celebrates the essential magic of the medium, which allows us to give pause in a world of rushing and inescapable impermanence.  Together, the disparate photographs and imagery of Passing Through form a journey with its own unique pace, one that mirrors the ebbs and flows of life’s seasons from the youthful rush of possibility through the expectations and trials of middle age and beyond. It is a trip by car across the American landscape, a bicycle excursion through the city, a waltz across a romantically lit room, the shifting sky-scape with ever-changing clouds, an unexpected and devastating automobile crash. The physical world traversed and inhabited by the artists in the exhibition echoes the topography of our internal worlds in that both are subject to the great equalizer of time over which we can never exert power.  To hold onto what invariably slips past, and give undeniable presence to a subject even as it begins to fade, is the photographer’s attempt to counter the fundamental dissolution of existence, out of which the most profound beauty, loss and aspirations materialize.
