Exhibition to feature the work of Harry Benson, Melvin Sokolsky, Joyce Tenneson, Andre Lichtenberg, and NYC Dance Project
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (PRWEB) March 19, 2019
ChromaLuxe, the global leader in dye-sublimation metal prints, in collaboration with Holden Luntz Gallery and fine art printmaker, Blazing Editions, are pleased to announce their partnership on the upcoming exhibition, “Big, Bold & Beautiful”.
The exhibition will feature the work of six exceptionally talented photographers: Harry Benson, Ken Browar, Andre Lichtenberg, Deborah Ory, Melvin Sokolsky, and Joyce Tenneson. The exhibition will run March 23 – May 4 at the Holden Luntz Gallery in Palm Beach, Florida. All exhibition prints will be printed by Blazing Editions on ChromaLuxe Aluminum Photo Panels.
“We have been very pleased with the fine art application of sublimated printing on ChromaLuxe aluminum that Blazing Editions has done,” said Holden Luntz. “It has allowed the photographers that we represent the ability to make vibrant, archival images that are bold and have a sense of immediacy.”
Seemingly present within walking distance of every significant cultural moment, from the Beatles first landing in America to MLK speaking in Canton, Mississippi, Harry Benson’s photojournalistic style and candid approach effectively create penetrating portraits that preserve the legends and memorable instants of world history. He has taken some of the most impactful, influential images of any photojournalist of our modern time. Harry Benson’s archive is truly “living history.”
Photography innovator, Melvin Sokolsky, whose bold ideas and experimental approach to fashion shoots expanded the creative limitations of the genre; going against the grain of 1950’s studio photography, he created poetic illusions, predating the idea of photoshop and changing the course of fashion photography. Sokolsky’s images were so uplifting they appeared to defy gravity and highlighted the enormous potential for allure and magic in image-making.
Joyce Tenneson’s elegant, harmonious, and ethereal images, are records of the phenomenon of an intrinsic spirit. Whether the photographer captures an incisive and straightforward portrait, a profile of an apple tree in situ, or a detailed, color study of a flower, Tenneson’s work delves into the essence and luminous capacities of live beings. The spirit that animates a living entity continues to fascinate her.
Andre Lichtenberg’s dreamlike childhood memories, sensibility with color, and inclination towards highly technical, scientific work create a unique perspective and savvy aesthetic. His series “Impossible Utopias,” is made of a multitude of separate images fused into a dreamscape, inspired by the landscape’s horizon and the sea looking out over the English Channel. Andre Lichtenberg ultimately delves deeper into tropes that have interested him since childhood, art and math, creating highly original photographs pieced together almost like a puzzle.
NYC Dance Project
For a duo concerned with capturing the world of New York City dance, Ken Browar and Deborah Ory, create images that capture with exceptional quality, the bodies, movements, and infinite grace of some of the world’s greatest living dancers. Their branded name “The NYC Dance Project,” is a collaboration between a commercially successful photographer and a classically trained dancer that together creates a unique series that records dancers from different companies and theaters paired with high fashion to capture beautifully detailed, moving images of dancers whose bodies are stopped in mid-flight by the camera.
“We are honored to have an entire show printed on ChromaLuxe aluminum at such a prestigious gallery as Holden Luntz,” said Steve Flores, ChromaLuxe Global Brand Manager. “The caliber of photographers featured in this exhibition is truly amazing. It is a testament to ChromaLuxe that these world-renowned photographers trust their images to be showcased on our metal prints.”
The dye sublimation printing process onto ChromaLuxe aluminum produces high definition, visually stunning images that also contain protective capacities unattainable with prints on paper. The attributes of the ChromaLuxe print maintain a scratch-resistant and fire-retardant quality, as the image is infused into the coating of the panel. The images are archival, as well as fade resistant. “Big, Bold & Beautiful” is an exhibition devoted to the joy of large-format photographs that amplify and maximize the content within each image.
