Photographer Jesse Myers deals a new hand at CORE New Art Space
"Chelsea," by Jesse Myers.
The image above -- a wonderful posed moment gone awry -- caused quite a stir in Denver's Art District on Santa Fe last year: first, as part of tbellphotographic's juried show, Is This How I Look?, where Ken Hamel gave it top honors, and again when I did the same as the jurist for the Art District on Santa Fe's Best of 2011 show. I'm still in love with it, in all its skewed perfection, but it's time to move on.
Myers will unveil a new direction in Stacked Deck, his new solo show as a member of CORE New Art Space. The exhibit's 52 photographic images, comparable to a deck of cards, represent "a cohesive relationship between my vision and the models' and stylists' creativity to produce beautiful images that are, in turn, representational and interpretive," he explains. Shuffle on in to see Stacked Deck at a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight at CORE, along with another solo, Twenty Faces -- Portraits of Painters, by Bruce Clark and drawings by Larry Clark in the annex; all three exhibits continue through April 15.
