Bushwick's own Glen Friedel will be exhibiting his piece, Awakening in the upcoming national juried show "Color" at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition in Red Hook from July 28-August 19.
His work is from an alternative photographic process called a "photogram". After some initial exposures to set background colors, Friedel uses a live model who physically lies on the light sensitive paper. Colored lights of various intensity are exposed, resulting in “a vision of the human essence.” The entire process is done in complete darkness and leaves no negative. Neat, eh?
There are eight individual pieces that make up the ten foot wide artwork and it's quite majestic up close. We here at TBD think you should check out this show, something tells us this one is going to be good. Congrats Glen.
