Paper Dreams 

When: Oct. 14-31 2016



The annual FRANK:inFocus photography festival—itself a part of the larger Click! Triangle Photography Festival—kicks off this week at FRANK Gallery in Chapel Hill. Of particular interest is Paper Dreams, an exhibit featuring guest artists Diana Bloomfield, Carolyn DeMeritt, and Aspen Hochhalter. All three women use alternative photography processes, resulting in dreamy, surreal, and personal photos touching on themes such as identity, the self, and memory. Hochhalter uses wet-plate collodion ambrotypes to deconstruct and reconstruct images of feminine identity. DeMeritt strips away her subjects' identities or obscures them completely. Bloomfield uses gum bichromate to repeatedly layer her images, softening hard lines and introducing physical ambiguity into memories of the past. The personal narrative of each of these artists is unique, leaving things open to interpretation while also inviting the audience to consider the nature of representation. After this opening reception, the exhibit runs through Nov. 8. —Iza Wojciechowska
