Doug Fogelson: Anthem

KLOMPCHING Gallery is delighted to begin the Fall Season, with a solo exhibition of new work by Doug Fogelson.
Anthem is the most recent installment of Fogelson’s extensive Chemical Alterations series, in which the artist perceptively combines the subject of nature, with the (de)construction of the photograph, to comment upon the human impact on the environment.
The eight photographs in the exhibition—lush in color—are at once beautifully rendered abstractions, and also for the artist are a reflection of “the altering effects that human activity has on our planet.” The work offers up the opportunity for viewers to consider ephemeral processes such as change and loss, as well as resilience and cyclical patterns.
The Anthem series is presented at an opportune time, when debates and discussion regarding the health of the environment is an increasingly urgent topic—in terms of economy, culture, politics and survival.
