Critic's Choice - 'In Santa Monica, Photography That Likes To Break The Rules' - LA Times

"Ever since the earliest photographic technologies, bushwhackers have willfully deviated from marked trails, but never, it seems, have more renegades tweaked convention than in the past decade or two. Digital processes have dematerialized photography, and artists have taken it upon themselves to rematerialize it in inventive, idiosyncratic ways."

Very, very pleased to see that my current group exhibition at ROSEGALLERY has been selected as the Critic'c Choice in the LA Times. The article talks of the exhibition, "Her First Meteorite, Volume 2" at the gallery and Leah Ollman writes about the show.

It articles details, "Melinda Gibson and Thomas Sauvin's "Lunar Caustic" images are the oddly urgent consequences of an act of rescue followed by an act of violation. The prints, made from a salvaged archive of Chinese vernacular negatives, have been bathed in acid, distorting their hues and tones, freckling the surfaces with rusty spots. The records have been preserved, only to be handed over to the forces of entropy."
