comunicato stampa

Stephen Roach

Andrea Meislin Gallery is pleased to announce the first New York solo exhibition of photographs by Stephen Roach.

Primarily using his own family as models, Stephen Roach constructs a reality of intimacy in his photographs. Rather than narrate a specific story, Roach uses his camera to photograph a distinct feeling that conveys intimacy despite its artificial construction. Roach has referred to his art as "Transient Narratives," where each individual photograph as well as an entire body of work clearly hints at a story, if only a fleeting one. This effect is achieved through the combining of photographs, sometimes quite disparate or unrelated, to create a single image with a singular tone. The result is often a moment of confusion wherein the viewer tries to decipher the single image, before realizing that the component images do not gel perfectly. It is this sense of suspension of disbelief surrounding an intimate or private action, which Roach seeks to achieve. It is then up to the viewer to determine how the narrative of the overall picture plays out.

Conditioned to believe what we see, Roach's photographs allow the viewer to both believe in something and also see the artifice of how it is made. Influenced by this very phenomenon in film, Roach's work certainly speaks to a particular cinematic quality. It is poetry and music, however, which Roach sites as an even greater influence for his art. The photographs achieve the same sense of harmony and timelessness or "pitch of feeling" that can be found in beautiful poetry or music.

Originally from Australia, Roach has lived and worked in Italy since 1982. His work has been exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions in Rome, Milan, Paris, Amsterdam, Tokyo and Sydney. His photographs are in the permanent collections of major museums including the Australian National Gallery, Canberra, Australia; the Bibliotheque Nationale de Paris' the Centre George Pompidou, Paris; and the Neederlandse Kunstichting, Amsterdam.

Idit Greenberg

Andrea Meislin Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by Idit Greenberg, on view in the Project Room. This is the artist's first solo exhibition in New York.

Between 1995 and 2004 Idit Greenberg traveled through the Italian provinces and found that the countryside functioned exceptionally well as both guide and metaphor for her own photographic interests. The result, Eternita, is a series about the psychological space that exists between Greenberg and her subjects, one that is underscored by the physical relationship to the subject and the unique development processes she employs. While not all of the photographs include figures, nearly all of the images suggest the lives of people. Whether photographing a lone horse or a quiet street, Greenberg is making a kind of portrait of a place - one that contributes to a feeling of being lost in a memory or dream.

Idit Greenberg teaches photography at The Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. She attended the Ipotesi Cinema School in Bassano di Grappa, Italy, where she worked with the director Ermando Olmi. Also a former fashion photographer, Greenberg's photography has appeared in leading European fashion magazines such as Donna, Mondo Uomo, Vogue Sposa and Vogue Uomo. Her fine art photography is included in the permanent collections of The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, and the Naggar Fund, London.
