Swimming in the Ocean of Becoming: Jolene Monheim @ The Emerson

An exhibition of photographs by Jolene Monheim, Swimming in the Ocean of Becoming, will run June 1 – August 13, 2010 in the Emerson Lobby. A reception will be held during Art Walk on Friday, June 11, and a gallery talk takes place at 5:30 pm.

Monheim combines images of water, figures and the skyscape to create dreamlike montages. “The shapes our bodies take in the watery environment of complete support fascinate me. The body softens and become primally itself – a Living Temple,” reflects the photographer Jolene Monheim. Several of her large scale digital images are printed on translucent vinyl lit from behind. Other images are printed and framed in a traditional manner. Meet her and hear about her processes and ideas on ArtWalk night.
