For those of you that couldn’t make it to the opening and have not yet made it by the gallery, you could have one more chance to see the work while the artist’s are present...
This Wednesday, Dec. 3rd, we’re having our “Artist Talk” at the gallery from 3:30 – 5pm.
Francesca Romeo, a fellow Pratt MFA graduate, will moderate the artist’s talk and discussion.
Francesca Romeo lives and works in New York City. She attended UC Berkeley as an undergraduate where she studied English Literature and later she received a dual Master’s degree from Pratt Institute in Photography and Art History. Her primary interest is in documentary photography while focusing on themes that reveal the construction of subcultures and the nature of addiction. Pathos, intimacy and a distinct sense of melancholy formulate the emotional tenor of her work, while the technical construction is influenced by cinema verite and film noir.
In addition to her work as a photographer she also writes photo criticism via: http://pixelatednews.blogspot.com/
An exhibition of her photographs will be on view at Daniel Cooney Fine Art in February of 2009.
