Currently on view at Galerie Fotoland are the recent works of Paul Elliott and Erica Keeling. Although the subject matter of Elliott and Keeling’s works are very different, they both use medium-format cameras and color film to achieve these different concepts. Come see this fun and interesting work for yourself in the first floor lobby of the Daniel J. Evan’s Library.
Erica Keeling’s days are filled with antiquated glamour, boundless curiosity and quiet humor. In her work she continues these sentiments, often depicting her subjects alone in staged roles and setting, where they are left to be absorbed and examined by the viewer. Each image captures an intimate moment from a larger narrative–scenes articulated with extraordinary intention. Erica served as an Evergreen photo intern in the 2010-2011. She shows her photographs, as well as paintings, regularly in Olympia and Seattle.
“I make photographs to capture moments that are telling of character. I shoot every day because I want to be my best,” says recent grad Paul Elliott. Elliott graduated from Evergreen in 2013, where he studied math, computer science and photography. His images were created during the summer months following his graduation.
Elliott and Keeling’s works will be on display January 28th – March 14th 2014.
