Jance - "The
timeless serenity of a statue standing adjacent... Portraits
of Wendy Moore"
the Moon passes through some portion of the Earth’s shadow
a lunar eclipse occurs. On rare nights like these the eclipse offers
darkness as a lens of perception, illuminating heavenly bodies that
would otherwise go unnoticed when bleached by a dominant Sun. The
Moon’s coloration and form are distorted relative to how much
light from the Sun is refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere.
Registering the illusion of a crimson Moon plays with our faculties
and expands our understanding of night. We see in the dark. Walking
through a black abyss navigated by our heightened senses arouses
the sublime and expands visceral perception.
Jance “The timeless serenity of a statue standing adjacent...
Portraits of Wendy Moore,” are photographs working as extensions
of memory into a physical realm of representation. Consider walking through
a day with astute attention to the temporal relationship of you to the
universe; your movements mapped, the places you inhabit documented, meanwhile
the space is forever changing. For each step you take is a moment in
time, stored into a vault of infinite memory; this is the landscape of
experience: time. Visiting a memory is allowing the dead to live, yet
that memory is not stagnant; it is pulsating with the constant flux of
layered seconds and therefore memories. Jance challenges his audience
to expand their initial perception of imagery by recognizing the impossible
manifest as definite. He has photographed the un-photographable, a ghost
in darkness. (more - continue
