ELEMENTS / 2001-2003
A sense of tactility and temperature pervade the photographs that comprise Hedison’s series, “Elements.” Weather clings to curtains and screens; landscapes, whether near or far, appear through these veils, blurry and hard to discern. Reality itself seems in question, in some quixotic way: the shadows of the objects beyond the focal plane seem more present than those appearing fully-formed on the sides of the screens in the foreground. Other images in the series picture bodies of water or swathes of foliage from around corners or through windows, apertures, or fog, establishing a poetic and orderly perspective on an otherwise immense scope of limitless experience.
“Elements” was first exhibited in 2002 at Rose Gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, California.
