“Lunar Phases,” new photography series by Centa Schumacher

Every of these digitally composited images are made from personal photographs –some “serious”, some snapshots–that I’ve taken over the years. By layering and overlapping these images in the shape of familiar lunar phases, I am evoking the cyclical nature of life, as nothing can truly be counted on but change. However, underneath it all the true self remains, sometimes illuminated and uplifted by the change, other times left in murky shadow.

“Brutal /Tender” recent works by Al Preciado

An exhibition of sculptures, paintings, photo collages and installation work encompassing the last 6 months in and out of the studio. “The roughshod and gentle nature of the art reflects a growing appreciation for all sides of my personal growth.”
