Woodstock photographer Vincent Serbin, better known for nudes and still lifes, will be exhibiting new landscape-based work this month at Galerie BMG. “Metaphysical Ground,” Serbin’s exploration of time—as expressed in tattered vertical layers of torn photographs pasted together with tape—chases the elusive metaphysical base that forms the edifice of knowledge (the past) and informs the uncertain future. As metaphors and as objects, Serbin’s images illustrate the ornamented, self-constructed nature of meaning.
“Metaphysical Ground” will be exhibited through July 23 at Galerie BMG, 12 Tannery Brook Road, Woodstock. (845) 679-0027; www.galeriebmg.com.
