DVAA is excited to announce our 3rd Open Lens group exhibition that features traditional film and digital photographic works being juried by Philadelphia based photographer and educator Howard Brunner.

We invite photographers to submit work in response to this year’s theme Urban Visions. This is work that shows a unique vision to living or experiencing the city of Philadelphia. Interpretations of the theme could be mystical, abstract, personal, literal, or in protest. One’s personal “vision” could reject conventional “urbanity”, it could attempt to redefine or illustrate it, or can show the personal or communal aspects of the city.

Application Deadline: 1/18/2017
Notification of selection: 1/25/2017
Opening Reception: 2/1/2017
About the Juror: Philadelphia based Photographer and educator Howard Brunner received a BFA in graphic design, Philadelphia College of Art and an MFA in photography from the University of Delaware. Brunner is currently teaching at Tyler School of Art and has a long history of teaching at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. Brunner is represented in the collections of; The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The James A. Michener Museum of Art, and the Allentown Museum of Art.

My recent works are a break from the painterly images I have made in the past few years. In a search for something more deliberate I changed my painting method and style. It is an abstraction using crosshatching, a technique usually reserved for rendering form and depth I have created an abstract flat image more akin to topography verging on minimalism. The linear hatch marks are made on a matte gradiated background which focuses the viewer on the duality of surface and color. These works are a meditation on labor and time: of coming together and the borders that separate us. The marks are not only creating an aesthetic pattern they are literally the marking of art, and the work that has gone into the piece.

In his introduction to "Michael Kenna: A Twenty Year Retrospective", Peter Bunnell explored the notion of the “unheroic landscape,” a term that aptly described the photographer’s “concern for the land more as feeling than about the land as place.” I recognized in this characterization a kindred sensibility that continues to inform my work. I find myself drawn to both the apposition and opposition of natural and human-made elements in landscape photography, and seek to convey the emotional to and fro between timelessness and evanescence.
