Orbgasm is Malone Mills second solo exhibition at Frank Pictures Gallery. We chose the title, Orbgasm, because it imparts the sense of the joy, optimism, mystery, and controversy that surround orb capture in photography.
“Clearly Malone Mills believes in orbs,” says Frank Pictures owner/curator, Laurie Frank, “and has represented this belief ecstatically in photographs. I believe in beauty. I don’t know if an orb is the basic energy pattern of the spirit world; an alleged life form; or a multi-dimensional being invisible to the naked eye, yet visible as a ball of light on film. I do know that it is almost impossible to find an artist doing something entirely fresh in photography within a context that captures the spirit of the age of which it is a part, and alludes to what is unseen in as visceral a way as what is clearly apparent. Perhaps the only miracle in these photographs is Malone Mills’ talent. The photographs are ravishing. They have to be seen to be believed.”
