Rockland Center for the Arts presents “Rockland Reverso” an assemblage of photographs by Laurie Peek, all taken in Rockland County. Peek’s photojournalistic work straddles the line between documentary and fine art, subtly transcending the ordinariness of its subject matter. The photographs are vibrant, fluid surfaces that animate the inanimate with gestural boldness. These documentary photographs of real places, are allusive images that convert the mundane into the magical. The resulting dream-like, painterly abstractions invite the viewer to see the world afresh and speculate on the unrevealed referent.
Peek received her MFA in Photography from SUNY Buffalo and has worked for publications that included The Brooklyn Paper and The Village Voice covering crime, protests and politics. Her work has been featured in such publications as The Village Voice, The Progressive and The New York Times. She was in the Oscar-nominated documentary film “Tupac: Resurrection” and the 2012 documentary film “Koch.”
Rockland Reverso will be on view Sept. 10 – Oct. 1, 2017. An opening reception will be held Sept. 10, 1 – 4 pm.
