Hay Field and Catskills, NY (Hudson Valley Landscape Photograph in Sepia)

2018

$2,500

About

Hayfield and Catskills, NY , 2018 pigment print on watercolor paper, signed dated and numbered on face Available in 2 sizes: 13 X 16 1/4 edition of 25 $1,500.00 20 x 24, edition of 25 $2500 This Black and White Sepia-toned print of a Hay Field and the Catskill Mountains was taken by photographer, James Bleecker. The field strewn with hay bales is lit beautifully by the sun breaking through an overcast sky. The trees in the forest behind the field are speckled with light, towered over by the large mountains in the background. Artist Statement: These photographs span the last decade of nearly four that I have worked in the Hudson River valley. While I have photographed landscapes, towns and cities, I have chosen a selection of rural scenes for this show. All are in Columbia County except “Allee,” (Tuxedo Park) and Quimby Farm (Marlborough). My photography spans four decades of living in the Hudson River Valley. While my Dutch ancestors settled here early - Bleecker and Verplanck are common place names - I don't know what, if any, pull that fact exerts. Certainly I'm attracted to the layers of time exposed here; in ancient stone walls, leaning barns, faded mansions and mill towns. The valley exudes boom and bust, love and leavings. About the Artist: James Bleecker photographs the landscapes and architecture of his native New York State. Since 1983 his work has spanned independent fine art photography and commercial architectural photography. Much of his work has been commissioned by museums and historic preservation groups in the Hudson River valley. About James’s work, Edgar Munhall, Curator Emeritus of The Frick Collection, has written, "James's work is powerful and mature. Rigorously composed and technically perfect, his photographs can reduce you to tears by their beauty." Collections: Berkshire Museum Barry Diller/IAC Albany Institute of History and Art Fenimore Museum Everson Museum Grants, Commissions: New York State Council on the Arts Albany Institute of History and Art Historic Hudson Valley Rockefeller family foundations (various) The Frick Collection American Museum of Natural History The Morgan Library & Museum Recently I have come to prefer sepia-toned black and white prints over color. Some photographs in this selection were originally printed in color. I regard my recent sepia-toned prints as distinct interpretations. Rather than numbering these prints in sequence with the old, I have begun new editions.
