First Thursday opening January 3, 6:00 to 8:00p

For her first solo exhibition at Upfor, artist Rebecca Reeve debuts Sun Breathing, a new body of photographic work. In the past, Reeve has used Venetian blinds, a grid-like form, as a means to capture, arrange and organize the landscape, painting them en plein air in response to the location. Images in Sun Breathing alternate her use of the gridded landscape with scenes in which she paints elements in the landscape itself. “A dialogue developed between the resulting pairs of images,” Reeve explains, calling them “a study in contrasts, the dichotomy of control and release."
