Jackson Fine Art is excited to announce its new exhibition with photographer Tabitha Soren with a solo exhibition of Relief, making its world premiere at the gallery.
September 16, 2022 - December 23, 2022
ATLANTA, GEORGIA-Jackson Fine Art Gallery is pleased to present Relief by Tabitha Soren.
During the period from September 16, 2022, to December 23, 2022, Soren's ongoing project will make its world premiere at the gallery. Soren will give a lecture and book signing at the gallery on September 15, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. She will also show her past works, Running and Surface Tension. Her three works are inspired by her experiences growing up in a military family, moving from place to place as a child, and adjusting to cultural differences from place to place.
When Soren began her artistic process, she used the tools she developed during her career in journalism. She used this to develop the visual ideas she communicates. Through cutting, bending, burning, blasting, and shooting the paper, Soren transforms beautiful landscapes and formal portraits. In this series, Relief is considered to be the "closing" of the circle that began with Running.
As a subversive experience, relief is considered to be "overly tactile," according to the Jackson Fine Arts press release. As a viewer, Soren's work envelops their senses by pulling them in for a closer look.
Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am until 5 pm, guests can view the work of Soren at the Jackson Fine Art Gallery (3115 E Shadowlawn Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30305).
