Moran Bondaroff presents David Benjamin Sherry – Paradise Fire — Los Angeles, USA — 14 NOV - 12 DEC, 2015
937 N. La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90069
Moran Bondaroff is pleased to announce Paradise Fire, David Benjamin Sherry’s third solo exhibition at the gallery. Well known for imaging vividly monochromatic landscapes, his latest series of over 20 photographs present a more realist view of the American West, yet he continues to use an 8 x 10 field camera – a solitary process that is as taxing as it is meditative. The exhibition’s title refers to a wildfire that burned roughly 2800 acres of Washington State’s rainforest earlier this year, an event indicating the severity of our changing climate, and a natural disaster named by pairing two seemingly contradictory words. Antithetical language can reach to articulate the unimaginable, and Sherry’s pictures endeavor to visualize an enigmatic landscape – a paradise on fire.
