Jean Albus: Ineffable
Jean Albus, Moira, Goddess of Fate
Reception: October 2, 6-8pm. On view through 10/28
CoCA is pleased to present a solo exhibit of Montana based artist Jean Albus’s beautifully disquieting photographs curated by Joseph C. Roberts.
To make her rural Montana landscapes personal, she injects evidence of herself in each photograph. Often, that evidence is a young woman’s dress in some state of decay and completely out of context in the dry desert terrain. The emotional effect is palpable. Is this evidence of a romantic coming of age -or a moment of rage? The work comments on aging, memory, transition, loss and mortality. Cheerfully, however, Albus says, “if you shine light on a dark subject, it’s not dark anymore; right?”
An artist reception will be held on Wednesday October 2rd from 6 to 9pm. Albus’s work will be on view through October 27, 2013.
