ANNA COLLETTE - INVASIVE SPECIES
OPENING: FRIDAY, JANUARY 22th, 6-8:30pm
Anna Collette is a photographer who explores conflicted notions of the contemporary landscape. Her work began in 2002 with a series rendering urban and suburban environments that focused on how the natural world—and human expectations of it—is being redefined, both visually and metaphorically, by the failed idealism of increasing development.
There is a poetic sadness in this invasion that is not unfamiliar. Much like any invasion, it is violent, swift, and irreversible. The entire world depicted in these photographs has turned green – and while it appears quite peaceful and serene there is an underlying tension that consumes it. These plants were originally brought to the northeast for erosion control, but over the years have spread throughout the area and have taken over the native species. For support, they wrap their vines around the native plants, but this blocks the sunlight and their support system eventually dies.
Collette was born in Massachusetts in 1974. She received a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and an MFA from Yale University. She teaches photography at Purchase College, SUNY, and lives in New York City.

1. SECOND RECEPTION AT THE +KGP: THURSDAY, JANUARY 7th, 6-8pm
SARA MACEL - TEXAS BUNCH
“Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word...A Texan outside of Texas is a foreigner.”
- John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America
Sara Macel moved to New York at the age of eighteen. In 2003 she earned a BFA in Photography and Imaging from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where she also received the Tobias Award for her project titled Kiss + Tell. After graduating, she spent two years as the assistant and studio manager to Magnum photographer Bruce Davidson and subsequently became a still photography producer at Art Department. She is currently pursuing an MFA in Photography at the School of Visual Arts. Macel will have her first solo exhibition next month at +Kris Graves Projects in Brooklyn, NY. The artist currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.
CARIN JOHNSON - NUANCES
Running concurrently with TEXAS BUNCH, Carin Johnson will showcase new works on paper. Johnson focuses on awkwardness in relationships and situations, and aims for the outcomes to not be expressly literal. Johnson uses her imagination to express what she sees from day-to-day into that verging on the surreal. She then takes aspects of things she finds interesting at a certain moment combining them into images that carry a clouded idea that is not easily identifiable - in hopes of stirring up the imagination to another plane of thought.
