Robert McCurdy

Exhibition Photo Description:
January 11 - 10 February 2007 McCurdy is not a photographer, nor is he a painter, but an artist who uses a chosen medium to manipulate the interaction between the viewer and the artwork. In his earlier “Flower” photographs, McCurdy has immersed himself in studies of Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century Dutch flower painting. The dynamic of these photographs is superficially still life, but the basic element of time lies beneath in these recreations of historical paintings rooted in centuries-old traditions, that have been recorded in the neoteric medium of photography. The work links the past and present. McCurdy’s portrait paintings are of people, but not about them. He writes, “During the [portrait] sitting, I look for a sustainable moment; one where there is no before or after. It is why there is no movement, no expression or gesture… The image is reported rather than interpreted. The technique is calculated to minimally filter the experience. There are no clues as to how the viewer should feel.”
