Postal Plaza Gallery / Feb. 9 - May 9, 2015
For more than four decades, Richard Buswell has trained his camera on the landscape of Montana, with its abandoned and overgrown homesteads and majestic, never-ending skies. His black-and-white photographs frame cast-off, common things to reveal abstract patterns in the tradition of twentieth-century modernist photography. Buswell describes his work as more interpretive and abstract than documentary. The images explore the junction where decaying artifacts become visual echoes of the past.
In conjunction with this exhibition, join us for an opening reception on Thursday, March 5 from 5 - 7 pm, featuring artist talk at 6 pm.
Richard Buswell: Close to Home was organized by the Montana Museum of Art & Culture at The University of Montana, Missoula, Montana.
