Galerie Fotoland is excited to present new work by Richard Dunford, An Intimate View of Wild Lands. Dunford’s love of nature and the Pacific Northwest shines through in images of dense landscape, rich in color and layers of texture.
“The dead of winter in the Northwest, in the overcast and rain is lifeless, dreary and gray if you let be so. I see vibrant, saturated color… Winter’s low sun, and its incumbent sidelight reveals secrets in shape and spaces.”
Dunford tried in this series to shift the view from a single focal point, the tree, to the landscape as a whole. “It is, to be sure, a messy visual experience… I am allowing light and shadow define spaces and create depth. The surround then creates the image.”
An Intimate View of Wild Lands is on display February 5th through March 13th, on the first floor Library building lobby.
