Shadow Play | Thomas Hlavacek

October 12 – 30, 2016

‘Shadow Play’ explores the concept of gestalt as applied to a network of cognitive processes through which we perceive the Thomas Hlavacek’s photographic series ‘Shadow Play’ investigates the concept of gestalt as applied to a network of cognitive processes through which we perceive the world.  By means of extreme manipulation of focus, scale and figure/ground relationships, images of ordinary subjects are distorted and rendered semi-abstract, encouraging manifold interpretations.  By deliberately subverting standard photographic conventions and thus potentially disorienting the viewer, the work invites a visceral engagement that extends beyond the merely visual.
