Neighborhood photographer and longtime Montgomery resident Bob Corley delivers to life a new side of pictures with the exhibit, “Beyond the Photograph.”
Fifteen items of Corley’s perform will be on display from Thursday as a result of December 17 at the Johnson Centre for the Arts in Troy, giving a charming search at images as Corley sees it in the digital age.
“Photography has been acknowledged as a good artwork for much more than a century,” claimed Corley. “The introduction of digital cameras and modifying software program had an impression equivalent to the introduction of coloration film and lesser cameras, opening up a new environment for photographers constrained only by their creativeness.”
In 2017, Corley shifted his aim from standard photographic images to what he describes as “digital painting,” combining photographic skills with electronic enhancing methods.
“Capturing an impression is just a starting off place on a journey of exploration to look further than the photograph. A digital digicam is my sketch reserve, a laptop and enhancing software my canvas and paints.”
Corley’s work has been proven in juried demonstrates and galleries in Montgomery, Auburn, Clanton, and Atlanta. Most lately, quite a few of his electronic painting were exhibited at Photographic Nights of Selma, an worldwide celebration of images.
The parts on show in the Kirk Gallery at the Johnson Center vary from “Morning Rush,” a 12”x12” still daily life of coffee cups, to “Monday 7 a.m.,” a 30”x30” canvas of two adult men at breakfast in a Fairhope café. Just about every impression is printed applying archival pigment inks on archival paper or canvas, and all items are for sale.
The opening reception for “Beyond the Photograph” will be held Sunday, November 22, 2-4 p.,m. Masks and social distancing are necessary. The Johnson Center for the Arts is found at 300 E. Walnut St. and is open Wednesday-Friday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
