a major solo exhibition by
June 1 - August 10, 2013
CEPA Gallery is proud to present Borderland
, the first major solo exhibition of the work of Marshall Scheuttle. The work showcased in the exhibition and catalogue was shot between 2009 and 2013 using a 8 x 10 view camera and archival pigment printed 55 x 67 inches. Marshall states about the work in Borderland:
In youth we create new sacraments, build hidden sanctuaries and cry out in defiance of our heritage. Borderland is a venture into these youthful dream songs; the time after a ritual has begun but before its resolution, the hypnopompic arena between wakefulness and sleep, the place between two worlds.
My photography explores individuals who exist in this Borderland, struggling with ritual, loss and the embrace of roles that are inherently mystic. The landscapes interspersed with the portraiture are meant to exist as sanctuaries for these individuals, islands of memory and longing, a ghostly homesickness or a deja vu of separation.
Jung proposed that in this Borderland we walk eternally between two opposing forces: the Depths and the Time. Pulled by the longing for one, stretching to embrace the immediacy of the other, it is this conflict that ultimately animates the world I have attempted to create through my work.
Please join us for an opening reception with the artist to celebrate this wonderful body of work, Saturday
, June , from 8-10 p.m.
The exhibition will be accompanied by full color catalogue with essays by Holly E. Hughes, Curator for the Collection, Albright-Knox Art Gallery and poet Danniel Schoonebeek.
This exhibition and publication are funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts and many generous individuals.
