GALLERY 1/1 is pleased to present the West Coast debuts of two innovative photographic artists, Hartford-based Robert Calafiore and Cleveland-based Joseph Minek. This two-person exhibition will feature new work by these artists who embrace process, material, and traditional darkroom techniques and each has elevated their studio-based craft into an exciting direction for photography. Calafiore employs his hand-built pinhole camera to create vivid large-scale one-of-a-kind chromogenic prints of abstracted still life tableaus constructed with mid-century modern glass objects. Minek also has a modernist abstract painterly quality to his work that he achieves by applying photographic chemistry on light sensitive color paper breaking all the traditional darkroom rules. He then assembles the paper elements into collaged mosaics of striking form and color.
