Volcano Watchers presented by Klea McKenna — San Francisco， USA — 12 JUL - 3 AUG, 2013
2948 16th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
Showcasing McKenna's exploration of experimental photography techniques, "Volcano Watchers" takes as subject the artist's off-the-grid childhood on the rural slopes of Mauna Loa, Hawaii. Her large-format color and black-and-white photograms make explicit use of natural materials (rain, fire, leaves, and light) to tell both a story of place and of photographic chemistry. Hovering between abstraction and the purest kind of representation, McKenna uses her work to investigate the feeling of a place through its imprints, both physical and mental.
