Artist-In-Residence: Jesse Farrah Camouflage

Sun Apr 14 - 10:00am to Sat Apr 27 - 5:00pm

As the world gets smaller we seek to create meaning in our lives. Personal ideas, opinions and struggles are awash in the undulating voice of a collective. I wish to express, in some small way, the struggle for meaning today. It is my little love letter to the individual.


A series of multiple­-exposure portraits using black and white film, the pictures will be exposed twice, once using a dark background and the models face/body changed by use of various props and paints to offset them from the concealing secondary exposure of various backgrounds. The aim is to create a blending of these backgrounds into an abstract composite.              


Once printed, the photos will be hung alongside the backgrounds/props (space allowing) in an elementary way. The background will represent a large contrast between the stark white of the photographs borders, highlighting the breaking through.


Salem Art Association exhibitions are always free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday from 10:00 AM-5:00 PM, and Saturday-Sunday from 12:00-5:00 PM.
