About the Item

This is from a show at Sidney Janis Gallery and is from the estate of Joan Sonnabend. Eve Sonneman (born in Chicago on 1946) is an American photographer and artist. She did a series of similar sequences in color and black and white and for diptychs. She was included in the show EYE OF THE BEHOLDER Photographs from the Avon Collection The exhibition addressed the diverse and changing concepts of beauty as expressed by women through photography. It included such masters of the form as Berenice Abbott, Marina Abramovic, Ellen Carey, Lotte Jacobi, Barbara Kasten, Sally Mann, Sheila Metzner, Cindy Sherman, Sandy Skoglund, Deborah Turbeville, and Carrie Mae Weems to name a few. Since the start of her career in the Young Photographers exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1971, Eve Sonneman has secured a unique position for herself in the world of contemporary art. Internationally renowned as a photographer, she has participated in the 1977 Documenta and in the biennales of Venice, Paris, Strasbourg, and Australia, has published five books, and has been the subject of 77 solo exhibitions. David Shapiro, "She is a painterly photographer [who] reminds us that photography, as with Man Ray and Rodchenko, must never be denigrated as mere materiality." In addition to her career in photography, Sonneman works in paint, making large abstractions, painting watercolors and objects. Her distinctive, highly personal form of pointillism has been acutely characterized by the critic Klaus Kertess as "teeming with tiny, obsessively made, evanescent rings congealing into a delicate and fugitive, floreate dew."

  • Vintage Large Format Abstract Unique Color Photo Polaroid Photograph Ellen Carey
    By Ellen Carey
    Located in Surfside, FL
    Untitled, Unique photograph. Center panel from larger scale installation. Shot in the 20X24 format. (this measures about 20X20 inches) Ellen Carey, American artist and photographer. Ellen Carey resides in Hartford, Connecticut, and teaches at the Hartford Art School. She holds a B.F.A. from the Kansas City Art Institute, Missouri, and an M.F.A. from State University of New York at Buffalo. Her photographs have been exhibited at numerous galleries and museums, including the International Center for Photography, New York and the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has received many grants from her home state of Connecticut as well as the Massachusetts Council of the Arts, New Works Grant, New York State Federation for Artists Grant; and a National Endowment for the Arts Award. Her photographs are in the permanent collections of The Art Institute of Chicago; the Baltimore Museum of Art; Brooklyn Museum of Arts; Chase Manhattan Bank; Coca Cola Corporation; Fogg Art Museum; George Eastman House; International Center for Photography; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among others. Abstract photography, sometimes called non-objective, experimental, conceptual or concrete photography, is a means of depicting a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world and that has been created through the use of photographic equipment, processes or materials. Some photographers pushed the boundaries of conventional imagery by incorporating the visions of surrealism or futurism into their work. Man Ray, Maurice Tabard, André Kertész, Curtis Moffat and Filippo Masoero were some of the best known artists who produced startling imagery that questioned both reality and perspective. Both during and after World War II photographers such as Minor White, Aaron Siskind, Henry Holmes Smith and Lotte Jacobi explored compositions of found objects in ways that demonstrated even our natural world has elements of abstraction embedded in it. Beginning in the late 1970s photographers stretched the limits of both scale and surface in what was then traditional photographic media that had to be developed in a darkroom. Inspired by the work of Moholy-Nagy, Susan Rankaitis first began embedding found images from scientific textbooks into large-scale photograms. By the 1990s a new wave of photographers were exploring the possibilities of using computers to create new ways of creating photographs. Photographers such as Thomas Ruff, Barbara Kasten, Tom Friedman, and Carel Balth were creating works that combined photography, sculpture, printmaking and computer-generated images. Any boundaries that remained between pure artists and pure photographers were eliminated by individuals who worked exclusively in photography but produced only computer-generated images. Among the most well-known of the early 21st century generation were Gaston Bertin...
