OUTSIDEinDarius Kuzmickas and Ryan Reynolds Featuring Sculpture by John Rose
October 01, 2012 - November 28, 2012

Susan Street Fine Art is pleased to present photographer, Darius Kuzmickas and painter, Ryan Reynolds exploring the intersection of OUTSIDEin. Using distinctive techniques, both Kuzmickas and Reynolds capture moments in time from fragments of information gathered through life’s constantly changing landscape.

Flooding lone interior spaces with the intricacies of our urban cityscapes and palm-lined coastlines, Darius Kuzmickas’ pinhole photographs entwine familiar details to capture the feelings of wonder, mystery and the loneliness experienced in finding a place in this busy world. Originally from Lithuania, Kuzmickas currently lives in Portland, Oregon. He says, “Camera Obscura is an interpretation of our visual perception and of how we assimilate information. Pinhole photography is a heavily intuitive process concerned more with creating a mood than delivering an image wrapped in reality.” By converting rooms into a Camera Obscura (literally translated as “dark, vaulted chambers”) each becomes a pinhole camera of its own, the outside reflected inside. Thus applying the origin of photography’s invention to the present day.

From the Santa Cruz foothills, Ryan Reynolds explores the intersection between past and present by painting a daily record of a site-specific location (the Lexington Reservoir) merged with historic photographs of that region. The area, which is now, a water source for the Silicon Valley, was once home to 200 residents. Painting fragments and layers of observation, Reynolds departs from the static image of the traditional landscape. He explores the boundaries between light, space, solid form and memory, conveying the passage of time and a sense of place. His paintings act as a reflection on the nature of our shared existence, individual perceptions and collective impressions. Often times, Ryan’s work looks as if multiple people were somehow painting the same piece with similar guidelines; each noticing different colors at different moments throughout the environments he chooses to capture.
