Spotlight on...Dorie Golkin '08

Top to bottom: "Legs," "Silver," "Stereo," and "Orchid"

Artist statement: "The Pose: Inside, Out" is about the way we see, the way we experience and the way we occupy. The absence and presence of forms and figures alter perceptions and change moods. Objects and people pose differently whether contained privately (inside) or publicly (out). Public social spaces call for photographic abstraction: forms are entangled, blurred and unfamiliar. Directly opposed to these chaotic images are the orderly interiors. Inside photos allow one to understand the space or figure as a whole without piecing together truncated parts. The experience with these spaces and these photographs is deeply personal and unique. I hope you enjoy the show.

Dorie's senior thesis show "The Pose: Inside, Out" opens on Tuesday, April 1 in the Lucas Gallery at 185 Nassau; there will be an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m.
