Marc Selwyn Fine Art is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Richard Misrach.  Richard Misrach is one of the most influential and internationally recognized photographers working today. He is best known for his epic project on the deserts of the American West. By exploring the social, political, environmental, and cultural characteristics of the places he photographs, he has expanded the notion of traditional landscape photographic practice.  His subjects have included manmade floods and fires, military bombing ranges, mass graves of dead animals, sublime night skies, and details of paintings housed in the museums of the Southwest.

This exhibition consists of new large-scale color prints, which continue to explore Misrach’s signature land and seascape imagery.  With deft manipulation of positive and negative and the color spectrum, Misrach transforms nature in surprising and heretofore technologically impossible ways.  Rocks vibrate with saturated tones, the water’s surface shimmers as a vast enigmatic expanse and the surf takes on improbable deep red shades.  Misrach’s classic scrub images become even more Pollack-like as their colors are manipulated by the artist – branches become abstract brushstrokes in a virtual photographic “action painting.”
