MM Fine Art is pleased to present our third annual group photography exhibition. This year’s theme Where I Live, is a fitting subject matter for the end of 2020, a year in which we have all been compelled to spend an inordinate amount of time at home. The artists present a wide variety of interpretations of the topic ranging from everyday landscapes, to self-portraits, interior still lifes, and more.
Jonathan Morse’s Self Portrait of a Photographer is an allegorical view of how and where a photographer lives, and interacts with, the real world, through one or another of the many lenses that exist in his camera bag and in his mind. Dianne Blell’s Lovers’ First Glance from her “Desire for the Intimate Deity” series could be retitled Love in the Time of Covid, as two lovers gaze longingly at each other from their socially distanced separate abodes. In Gary Beeber’s Suburbia series, a backyard slide morphs into an art object becoming the photographer’s unexpected muse and metaphor for suburban life. To New Yorker Betsy Pinover Schiff, the city of concrete and glass is her home. The photographer sees graphic patterns, shadows and reflections wherever she goes as is evidenced in her empty storefront portrait Covid Fashion.
Where I Live will be on view December 12, 2020 through January 10, 2021, opening with a masked afternoon reception Saturday, December 12, 2 to 6 PM, for which a limited number of people will be allowed in the gallery at one time. Please help us support those in need in our community by bringing a donation to the opening for Heart of the Hamptons or visit heartofthehamptons.org/donate to make a financial donation.
