Brooke Golightly has created a new body of work for her show. Golighly sets up her tripod in a rural area and then creates a photograph with herself disguised in various costumes. The face is never really shown and leads the viewer to perceive the person as potentially “anyone”. The photographs are then manipulated to impart her message in each of the works.
Golightly writes about her work: “There is a tension that resides between the way we see ourselves and the way the world sees us. This tension has never felt so palpable to me as an artist. By implanting a very human presence into the landscapes of my pieces, I seek to impart a sense of belonging, but also the great responsibility to this land as well as all living organisms.”
To schedule an appointment to view the work in person or if you have questions about the work, please feel free to contact the gallery.
