Well the Missus and I trundled down to Newbury Street yesterday to catch Once, Still and Forever at Robert Klein Gallery, and say, it was swell.
From the RKG press release:
SUBLIME COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS BY JESSICA BACKHAUS
SHOWN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN BOSTON
BOSTON, MA – ROBERT KLEIN GALLERY (38 Newbury St) is delighted to announce an exhibition of photographs by JESSICA BACKHAUS. Known for her sublime sense of color and time, Backhaus has her first major museum show this fall at KUNSTHALLE ERFURT in Germany. Backhaus is represented exclusively in the United States by Robert Klein Gallery.
As the first dealer to present Backhaus in Boston, Robert Klein Gallery will have shows simultaneously on Newbury Street and at ARS LIBRI (500 Harrison Ave), its satellite gallery space, beginning Friday, October 4.
ELISABETH BIONDI, former Visuals Editor at THE NEW YORKER, writes: “[Backhaus’] pictures are lyrical foremost, sometimes moody, sometimes happy… It strikes me when looking at the collection of her pictures…that they become a wonderful tapestry of color, light, and shadows. Timeless.”
These are photographs that look like paintings.
Well worth a visit.
