Fern L. Nesson: TILT!
September 1, 2023 – October 29, 2023

“With the tilt of her camera, Nesson’s photographs of architecture evoke scientist and philosopher, Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), who first theorized that the planets orbit the sun rather than the reverse. Copernicus’ innovative thoughts were thanks to his ability to shift perspective. He imagined how one’s perspective might change if Mars, rather than the Earth, was at the center of the universe. Nesson, too, takes standard perspective and shifts it to give viewers a new paradigm of understanding. Places are infused with qualities beyond their practical uses by translating functional architecture into undulating lines, and luminescent dimensionality with a monochromatic palette. Nesson’s tilt of the camera reinterprets and holds reverence for familiar places and objects, while also questioning the notion of maintaining a singular outlook on the world.”
