Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to present new of work by Matt Leedham and Tom Sliter: "Bold Planet". This exhibit will be on view from January 2 through February 10, 2019, with an opening reception to be held on January 12, 2018, 2-4pm.
Why are we drawn to the magnificence of nature? It is often the places that are the most remote and the most dramatic that call our attention. The mixture of grandeur and loneliness, and the contrast of complete fullness and emptiness captures my attention. The adventure each image requires of me is my inspiration. It is my hope that these images inspire you to go out and explore for yourself.
Our planet contains myriad landscapes that are at once visually stunning and emotionally appealing. In this exhibit, I focus on the contrasts and similarities of two extreme locations – the Antarctic Peninsula and White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. Despite being separated by thousands of miles and a hundred degrees, both ice and sand are sculpted by common natural forces to reveal an artistic kinship, a visual unity that is reinforced in a black and white print. I hope this exhibit not only captures your imagination but deepens your appreciation for our Bold Planet.
