Heavy Metal: Photographs by Jan Staller

April 21, 2018 - July 29, 2018

Jan Staller’s large-scale photographs transform the industrial environment into a place of profound, otherworldly beauty. In images of building materials suspended from cranes, construction sites, and recycling yards, Staller presents found industrial objects as sculptural artifacts of the post-industrial age. Focusing on pattern, geometry, line, light, and space, Staller’s vision discerns order amid chaos, beauty in decay, and a sense of mystery within the ordinary. Heavy Metal features over a dozen monumental photographs and a three-channel video from almost two decades of the artist’s career.
