ARTIST TALK AND BOOKSIGNING
Susan Burnstine, Absence of Being
Rachel Phillips, Divinations
Thursday, October 13, 2016
6 - 8 PM

Please join us on Thursday, October 13th from 6 - 8 PM with photographers Susan Burnstine and Rachel Phillips.

Susan Burnstine is an award winning fine art photographer pursuing alternative process to create idiosyncratic and deeply personal visual landscapes.  Her handmade film cameras, comprised of plastic, vintage camera parts and random household objects, create dreamlike images that speak to the sub-and unconsciousness of the viewer. She will be sharing her latest book, Absence of Being, an intensely personal, yet universal exploration of the subconscious world.

Rachel Phillips' photo-objects have been exhibited and published widely, including in shows this year at Dina Mitrani Gallery, Photo-Eye Gallery and Candela Gallery. Phillips describes herself as a hunter-gatherer, sifting through dusty piles of ephemera, and employs an unusual transfer-printing technique in her work, physically adding new imagery to century-old artifacts.
