A B E L A R D O M O R E L L : Outside In
23 November, 2013 - 18 January, 2014
Abelardo Morell has garnered international praise for photographs that render our everyday world a place of magic and wonder. Citing influences as varied as Ernest Hemmingway and Anselm Kiefer, John Cage and Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Søren Kierkegaard and Minor White, he works with an intelligence that is neither glib nor obtuse, but rather grounded in an emotional sensitivity and unbounded intellectual curiosity. Morell photographs the world as it is, capturing it like a netted butterfly, vigorously alive yet eternally suspended within his camera’s frame. He delights in the quiet life of objects, the spectacular beauty of the quotidian, the transformative power of light, and the transcendent promise of natural phenomena.
