Current EXHIBITION AT THE GALLERY AT STILL RIVER EDITIONS
"The Stillness In Between"
Photographs by luciana mcclure and cam gould
October 13 - december 21, 2018
Opening reception Saturday, october 13, 2018, 2 pm - 4 pm
We live in a world of visual over-stimulation. From constantly flickering screens to overly bright billboards, our eyes and minds have little chance for rest. The images in this exhibition are an antidote to the frenzy. The work of Luciana McClure and Cam Gould demonstrates a simplicity and stillness that allows the viewer to appreciate the elemental beauty of a scene. Like poetry in visual form, the images include only what is necessary to evoke a mood, thought, or feeling.
About the Artists
LUCIANA MCCLURE is a photographer and multi-visual artist who grew up in Brazil and has been making photographs for over 17 years.
Over the years, as her life has shifted, so has her photography: from portraits to urban landscapes then to rural landscapes. Lately she enjoys chasing grey, foggy days throughout New England.
Recently, McClure has embraced her fascination with themes of wandering, wonder, impermanence and solitude through her landscape photographic works. She is interested on how nature represents a place of escape and solace.
McClure currently lives in Connecticut her two children and two dogs and is also a photography faculty instructor at Creative Arts Workshop while leading Nasty Women Connecticut.
CAM GOULD grew up in rural Maine and spent his free time exploring the forest and fields surrounding his home. The rhythms and patterns of the natural world became ingrained in his conscience and continue to inform his artistic endeavors. In middle school, Cam learned the fundamentals of photography and began carrying a camera on his journeys into the Maine woods.
Gould later attended Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA before returning to Maine to work as an arborist and mountain guide. In 2013, Gould moved to Bridgeport, CT. At first, he struggled to adapt to a more urban setting. However, he soon discovered the many beautiful natural areas nearby and began photographing often-overlooked details, forms, and relationships within these spaces. He hopes his work will inspire others to look more closely at, and care more deeply for the world beyond their usual routines.
Gould lives with his wife, Miranda, in Monroe, CT. His other artistic passion is sculpting wood.
