Sous Les Etoiles Gallery is pleased to present Here Blooms the Flower of Dawn, a new exhibition presenting for the first time in the gallery the Spanish duo artists Angel Albarrán and Anna Cabrera known as Albarrán Cabrera.
An opening reception will be held on Saturday, November 18th, from 3 PM to 6 PM in the gallery space located at 16 East 71st Street, New York, NY, 10021.
Nature and its splendid colors leave us with a lot of imagination. Time is suspended and each photograph emanates a charm made of poetry, softness and voluptuousness. Influenced by both occidental and oriental thinkers and artists, Albarrán Cabrera photograhs question our assumptions of time, place and identity in order to stimu late a new understanding of one's own experience and perception.
A special curiosity for photographic chemistry guides their aesthetic practice. Albarrán Cabrera see their works as objects focusing not only on the image itself but also by their physical quality when printed. As Albarrán Cabrera have pointed out 'this wide range of processes and materials serve a single purpose: to give us far more parameters to play with the viewer's imagination than a mere image. The texture, colour, finishing, tones – even the border – of a print can provide the viewer with valuable information.'
The work of Albarrán Cabrera is included in the private collections and institutions like Hermès, Goetz Collection, The German Bundestag's Art Collection, Banco de Santander and De Nederlandsche Bank among others.
