BU Presents "Objects of My Affections:" Photographs by Paul Cary Goldberg

(Boston, Mass.) — Paul Cary Goldberg’s photographs, on view beginning November 30 at Boston University’s Sherman Gallery, depict the familiar objects of everyday life. Using a radically new photographic technique known as "Iris" or "Giclee," the photographic prints are made using state-of-the-art computer techniques, producing a final image that blurs the boundary between photography and painting.

The exhibition showcases twenty-four recent prints — luminous still lifes of everyday objects. "In essence, they are outward expressions of interior landscapes," says Goldberg. "I think of them as lyrical, metaphorical narratives about love and loss, confidence and fear, integrity, isolation, longing, belonging ... the human condition." According to the Boston Globe’s Cate McQuaid, the colors of the objects, photographed in natural light, are "unlike any you might see in a photograph ... The greens are exquisite: near blue, sweet and seductive against a total black ground."

Art New England Editor Carl Belz recently awarded Goldberg an Honorable Mention in the Cambridge Art Association’s National Prize Show. His work has also been selected for Soho Photo’s 2000 National Photography Competition and for the Bristol Art Museum’s National Juried Show. Exhibition dates: Friday, November 30 through Sunday, January 21, 2001 (closed December 23 through January 2, 2001) Where: Boston University’s Sherman Gallery, Boston University Sherman Union 775 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston Hours: Tues. - Fri., 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sat. and Sun., 1-5 p.m. Opening Reception: Thursday, November 30, 5 to 7 p.m. For information: 617/358-0295

Slides are available upon request or via the web. The exhibition and all Gallery events are free and open to the public.
