Jordan Tate, Gamut Warning @ Denny Gallery

Pretty reminiscent of Lyndsy Welgos’s work over at Rawson Projects where she paired images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s collection with photoshopped color swaths, creating a cheeky look at institutional presentation while creating inventive abstractions from vernacular images. Tate takes still-lifes of an odd assortment of scientific objects and pairs them with other scientific still-lifes or swaths of color, creating an enjoyable mix of the abstract and utterly objective, which, come to think of it, is a good metaphor for photography.
