JAMES CASEBERE – SCALES AND DIMENSIONS

CORNELL UNIVERSITY, ITHAKA, USA

From August 24th to September 20th 2014 Scales and Dimensions presents a broad interdisciplinary practice joining art and architecture. Rarely does artist James Casebere reveal the scale models that contribute to the “work,” defined as the photograph. This exhibit is uniquely organized to engage students and faculty in the creative process behind the work. The show reveals the artistry of how modeling is handled in the creation of an image conceptualized from specific vantage points.John Hartell Gallery will feature Casebere’s recent work, mostly from the Landscape with Houses (Dutchess County) series featuring several very large framed photographs and, unusually, a display of the corresponding scale models that were used to create the photographs. Olive Tjaden Gallery will exhibit highlights of other projects, including pieces from his Vaulted Corridor, Tunnel, Hallway, and Spanish Bath series. (…)
