Ryan Nabulsi: Photo Secession. In many ways, Ryan Nabulsi’s camera-less photographs represent  a natural conclusion to the goals of Steiglitz and Steichen in promoting pictorial photography. Relying on the manipulation of the photographic chemical process for instant photography, Nabulsi generates abstractions of lush color perhaps more akin to color field painting.  He is a great cultivator of the happy accident thus chance figures prominently in his process. Like the collaborations of John Cage and Merce Cunningham, Nabulsi rolls the dice of unpredictability to create explosions of petal-like forms, a sea of green forming into a kind of tidal wave, the stratifications of a strange fossil, an ovum, a nebula. Ryan Nabulsi: Photo Secession is in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography and runs September 10 to October 8.

buscame en el torbellino: but also time itself, a project by artist William Cordova, “focuses on the duality and recourses of collective memory within our spatiotemporal continuum. Slowing down our visual sensors in order to comprehend and disseminate the parallels between familiar and distant historical moments in many cases forgotten or displaced.  A sculptural element entitled, This one’s 4U is scaffolding turned sideways transformed into a self-contained projection module and will screen two films: Tupac Amaru by Federico Garcia Hurtado (1984) and Tupac: Thug Angel by Peter Spirer (2002).  Both film and structure nuance complex historical trajectories.”  -William Cordova

OCTANE
*PLF at Octane*
1009-B Marietta St.  (404) 815-9886
www.octanecoffee.com Open 8am – 11pm
Artist Peter Ferrari’s (PLF) latest show at Octane consists of 7 large panels painted in aerosol.  As with much of his work, this show seeks to combine both biological and industrial imagery with an attractive yet slightly sinister aesthetic.  He has been working on many large murals throughout Atlanta lately, and this show was intended to be a way for people to own a piece of his larger paintings.  PLF’s work is inspired by central American art, African art, Celtic knots, cathedral windows, graphic design, typography, graffiti, women, sex, love and hate.  He hopes that this show will expose his aerosol works to an even larger audience, and inspire creativity and curiosity in those who see it.
