EXHIBIT: “Chromatography” by photgrapher James Guay
Photography Exhibit through January 6, 2006
Eugene photographer James Guay transforms solid, everyday objects and decaying industrial spaces into fiery abstract images. His influences include Miles Davis, Marc Rothko and Henri Cartier-Bresson. Guay’s new exhibit, Chromatography, runs through January 6 in the law school’s second floor gallery.
This is the third in a series of law school photography exhibits organized by torts professor and art czar Dominic Vetri, who says, “These ordinary objects become beautiful abstract paintings in his hands. Those around the library entrance are especially beautiful in the morning as the sunlight streams through the East windows.”
Guay is a Connecticut native and a graduate of George Washington University. His photographs have appeared in solo and group shows in Chicago, Washington DC, Oregon and his home state. This fall, his work can be seen at the Corvallis Fall Festival, Bend Fall Festival and Best of the Northwest shows in Seattle and Portland
Most of the 33 photographs are available for purchase in a number of sizes. Price list available from Alice Marr at (541) 346-1559 in the law school administrative offices or from the artist by email or phone (541) 687-4662.
