Staircase (Square, Sepia Toned Vintage Photograph of a Spiral Staircase)

1992

About

Sepia toned silver gelatin print, edition 4 of 25 Custom black stained wood molding with visible grain 8-ply antique white mat with AR non glare glass. 4.5 x 4.5 inches unframed, 17 x 17 inches framed This square sepia toned silver gelatin print of a Victorian spiraling staircase was printed by photographer, David Halliday, in 1992. The graceful spiral staircase is part of an abandoned Victorian house with walls layered with chipped paint. The simplistic scene calls attention to details in light and shadow as well as shape and form. The small, square formatted sepia tone photograph is complimented with a custom black stained wood molding that has visible wood grain with an 8 ply antique white mat & AR non glare glass. About the work: David Halliday reaches into his archives of images to compile a selection of both sepia toned photographs mixed with more recent color works; each are iconic representations of the most ordinary objects of everyday life. Together they represent a fading essence of things quintessentially ‘American’. For the artist, beauty and nostalgia are pervasive, but lamentation has its role as well. About the artist: David Halliday first gained renown for his sepia-toned silver prints of elegant, meticulously-composed still lifes. His more recent color work maintains the same intimate and simple beauty but also creates a visceral connection for the viewer. Like a painter, he emphasizes volumes, balances, texture and areas of subtle shading. Born in Glen Cove, New York in 1958, Halliday attended Syracuse University and pursued further studies under the tutelage of Arnold Newman. He has exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe. In 2002, the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans exhibited a retrospective of his work and in 2012, he exhibited at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans. Halliday’s work is included in numerous public and private collections including the New Orleans Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the New Britain Museum of Art.
