The Truchas Gallery
Photographs by Allison Marsh will be shown April and May at Truchas Gallery, Los Bagels in Eureka. As a graduate of Humboldt State University’s studio art program, Allison has used her camera as a vehicle for self-expression and mindfulness. She observes her surroundings and responds on an emotional level, capturing a moment that resonates with truth-beautiful, sometimes painful, fleeting, permanent truth. The heart feels and the eye sees even before the mind can comprehend. Her lens captures the moment for us, so that we can allow the resonance to ripple through us and bring meaning to the picture’s observer. Through her lens, space and time lose their seemingly concrete nature. Somehow limiting her vision through the miniscule viewfinder, opens her perception of the profound and the universal in her subject.Her photographs celebrate moments of seeming discord or contrast by showing the harmonizing factor of beauty or timelessness in the fabric of the image. Her camera casts a romantic glance on everyday life, using the flexible medium of perspective to harmonize seemingly discordant qualities.In a culture where we are consistently exposed to media images and thousands of our own digital capturings, Allison invites us to reach more deeply into the snapshots of our lives, and to retrieve moments borrowed from our dreams and memories.A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, April 6th from 6-9pm at Los Bagels 401 2nd Street Eureka.
