MICHAEL MANSFIELD

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, August 24th, from 5-7pm

SHOW RUNS: August 24th - September 28th, 2019

We are pleased to present Michael Mansfield’s first solo exhibition in the state of Maine, curated by Gallery Director and Curator, Sarah Bouchard. Mansfield will be showing a series of digital video compositions created over the past ten years, including new work conceived specifically for this show.

Mansfield’s digital work extends a split-second image through time, playing with the possibilities of an image and expanding its presence indefinitely. Originally trained as a photographer, he often worked with stacks of contact sheets, watching an event develop over multiple shots. 

The process of identifying a single image to capture an experience was both gratifying and a bit limiting. Mansfield wanted to be able to exist within a singular composition a bit longer, elevating his understanding of a subject and also creating a virtual world in which the image could unfold. 

Mansfield often begins with a single photograph or picture, images he shoots himself or mines from online archives. Using computer code and digital scripts, these photographic elements are then reanimated to create moving figures and composite scenarios. His work offers an opportunity for the viewer to enter into a different relationship with an image, simultaneously taking in the reality of a subject while exploring alternate incarnations of how its existence could evolve. The resulting works refigure a single instance in nature to explore evolution in the information age.
