Holly Lynton’s Bare Handed, with an artist talk on Thursday, March 12th at 7 pm. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at Dina Mitrani Gallery. dinaThis series of photographs narrates the stories of New England country farmers who have chosen to sustain ethical farming practices despite the pressures of the rapidly expanding business of agriculture. Bare Handed tells of the impalpable connections between man, creature and the forces of nature. The labor-intensive images reveal this very commitment to the holistic practices of these farmer’s “agrarian traditions.” The innate stillness that is captured in each photograph speaks of a graceful evenness between preeminence and submission.
While photographing this body of work, Lynton often found herself amazed by the countless mythical and religious references that candidly appeared before her lens. With just a tilt of her head, the teenage girl in Sienna, Turkey Madonna, transformed into a rendition of the Virgin Mary. In her statement she writes, “Not always overt, I look for gestures and draw inspiration from religious paintings, mythology, and iconic tales of struggle to convey a sense of mysticism that is in the everyday.”
