My friend Michael Seif has been very generous with keeping me supplied with images of my work seen elsewhere. In turn I want to let friends know about his stunning show currently on view titled The Fluid Figure Photographs by Michael Seif at the Griffin Museum of Photography's Atelier Gallery at the Stoneham Theatre in Stoneham, MA.
To see his work one is overwhelmed with the strong desire to own one of his photographs. Recently Artscope (Sept/Oct 2011) reviewed his work at Copley's Society of Art show "Then & Now: The Enduring Allure of Light in Photography”
Seif’s underwater portrait of two bodies coming together is overwhelmingly sensual; an image of graceful movement where the human figure is presented in a fantasy world as an unidentified watery organism. Changing the perspective as he composes his photographs, Seif is able to hold the light present at that moment to reveal the specifics of a quickly altering event.
The reception is this Thursday, December 15th, from 6 - 7:30 pm. Michael will give an artist talk about his 8-year project that has resulted in the photographs in this show. If you can't make the reception, but I strongly urge you do as Michael gives a wonderful inspiring talk, know there is time to see this exhibit as the show runs through to January 15.
The Griffin Museum's Atelier Gallery at the Stoneham Theatre is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 1-6 p.m., and one hour before each theater performance. The gallery can be accessed through the Stoneham Theatre's lobby at 395 Main Street in Stoneham, MA.
