Tara Sellios Testimony Lauren Semivan Observatory March 2–April 2, 2017 First Thursday Opening Reception March 2, 6:00–9:00 PM Artist Talks: Lauren Semivan: Thursday, March 2, 5:00 PM Tara Sellios: Friday, March 3, 12:00 PM All Blue Sky events and programs are free and open to the public. “Within each image, ghosts of previous drawings create a sense of time suspended, evoking gesture, atmosphere and memory. Photographs allow me to access the extraordinary, to keep a record of dreams, and to employ the unforeseen.” To create the large format black-and-white photographs that comprise Observatory, Lauren Semivan brings together the visual languages of drawing, still life painting, and performance to express her dreamlike interior narratives on film. Using charcoal and graphite, Semivan makes gestural marks on large backdrops, setting the emotional tone for each image and leaving traces of her presence. When Semivan does appear in the front of her 8x10 view camera, she often seems caught in a dance, her identity obscured within the image’s painterly abstraction. Strategically placed objects also populate the staged environment, adding additional layers for the eye to peruse and inviting us into the depths of the artist’s inner world. Lauren Semivan (b. 1981) is an artist living and working in Detroit, Michigan. She received a BA in studio art from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, and an MFA in photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at many galleries and museums and she has taught photography at the College for Creative Studies, The Ohio State University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Wayne State University. Semivan has received numerous awards for her work including Photolucida Critical Mass Top 50 and The Griffin Museum of Photography’s Griffin Award. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Artforum, and Photograph magazines and is part of the permanent collections at the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Cranbrook Art Museum, The Wriston Art Galleries at Lawrence University, and The Elton John Collection. She is represented by Benrubi Gallery in New York, and David Klein Gallery in Detroit, Michigan.

Tara Sellios Testimony Lauren Semivan Observatory March 2–April 2, 2017 First Thursday Opening Reception March 2, 6:00–9:00 PM Artist Talks: Lauren Semivan: Thursday, March 2, 5:00 PM Tara Sellios: Friday, March 3, 12:00 PM All Blue Sky events and programs are free and open to the public. "Death has always possessed a significant presence within the history of art, ranging from altarpieces to the work of the Dutch still life painters. Manifesting melancholic themes with beauty and precision, as these artists did, results in an image that is seductive, forcing the viewer to look, despite its apparent grotesque and morbid nature. Through these images, I aspire to make apparent the restlessness of a life that is knowingly so temporary and vulnerable.” Inspired by Last Judgement paintings of the Baroque era, Tara Sellios’ Testimony is a visual rumination upon the fragility, impermanence, and carnality of life. Her process is meticulous and deliberate, with each tableaux beginning as a detailed watercolor sketch. Sellios then translates each painting into sculpture, carefully placing rehydrated insect specimens and animal skeletons into intriguing configurations that she subsequently photographs with an 8x10 view camera. The resulting larger-than-life color photographic prints, which will be on view alongside selected watercolors, are meant to disrupt preconceived notions of death while also offering a space for contemplating our mortality. Tara Sellios (b. 1987) is an artist living and working in Boston, Massachusetts. She holds a BFA in Photography from The Art Institute of Boston and has exhibited extensively regionally and nationally. Her work has been featured in Photograph magazine, the Boston Globe, and on the Lenscratch photography blog. Blue Sky is honored to host Sellios’ first solo show on the West Coast.
