photo-eye Gallery is proud to announce two concurrent exhibitions, Emergent Behavior by Thomas Jackson and Home by Nightfall by Angela Bacon Kidwell, opening on Friday May 29th with a reception from 5-7pm. This is the first exhibition by both artists at photo-eye Gallery.
Jackson’s Emergent Behavior displays manufactured objects reacting as self-organizing organisms, such as swarming locusts or flocking birds, within a natural environment. Featuring constructed installations, Jackson’s vivid color images juxtapose the natural and the man-made and the real with the imaginary. Flocking birds can also be found in Bacon-Kidwell’s black-and-white photographs, which employ murmurations as metaphors for bodily strife. Combined with images of the road, dust, and stars Kidwell paints a powerful symbolic portrait of loss, grief, and ultimately acceptance.
Thomas Jackson has exhibited at the Center for Book Arts in New York, was named one of the Critical Mass Top 50 in 2012, earned CENTER’s curators choice Award (2nd Place) in 2014, and has work in the permanent collections of the Rotch Library at MIT in Cambridge, MA, and the Center for Photography at Woodstock in Woodstock, MA. Jackson currently lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
Angela Bacon-Kidwell was recently named to 2014’s Critical Mass Top 50, was nominated for the Santa Fe Prize for photography in 2011, and earned the Directors Award at the Center for Fine Art Photography in 2013. Bacon-Kidwell has exhibited internationally, including the Renaissance Photography Prize, and her work has been published in SHOTS, COLOR, and B&W Photography Magazine among others. She currently resides in Wichita Falls, TX.
