Starn Brothers: Absorption of Light
Monday, June 27, 2016
Light shines through the darkness, illuminating all in its path. Light is the source of the visible world, whether in our everyday existence or in the creation of a photograph. It is light that makes seeing and recording sight possible, and so it is a wonder to behold. It is an energy that guides as well as stuns, and in this way, light is a force of reckoning.
American artists Doug and Mike Starn understand this very fact, and began a series of photographic explorations of the relationship between nocturnal moths and sources of light. The ill-fated moths are drawn to their deaths, as the Starns capture their last moments on earth in a series of photographic prints titled Attracted to Light. A selection of works from this series are on view in Starn Brothers: Absorption of Lightat 516 ARTS, Albuquerque, NM, now through September 17, 2016.
