Charles Purvis will be presenting select work from his time in New York and from work made more recently in Portland, including handmade books and image objects.
“Two things that (generally) deﬁne my work: traditional materials and personal interpretations.
Faithful rendering is not of interest to me. I prefer to express an intuitive experience of objects. In my mind’s eye, everything is alive.
What interests me is to create images that I have not seen before, images that are, in some way, not fully resolved, stimulate associations, or present a visual tension.
I like to work with traditional materials because the limits of analogue photography call forth particular creative strategies and solutions.”
Bio: For many years Charles Purvis worked as a photographer in New York City creating groundbreaking imagery for a wide variety of internationally known clients. In addition to commercial assignments, Charles has created a large body of innovative work inspired by a relentless curiosity and desire to uncover the creative potential of camera, light and ﬁlm.
