2014-02-06 01:07:31 - NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of of California artist Marshall Gould in Figuratively Speaking. The exhibition is scheduled to run from February 7, 2014 through February 27, 2014. The opening reception will be held on Thursday night, February 13, 2014 from 6-8 pm.
Marshall Gould’s sharp, high contrast black-and-white photographic prints can be characterized by diagonal framing, clean compositions, dramatic highlights and strong, luxurious shadows. Often taking candid, documentary-style shots on location, Gould’s latest subject matter might involve an American veteran cemetery or a homeless person, making these gritty works as conceptually dense as they are compositionally superb. Usually incorporating elements of the earth and/or sky, Gould’s works are about co-existence and reference the stylistic philosophies of early black-and-white “Golden Age” photography including the classic work of Ansel Adams. Adopting the mantra “Think globally and shoot locally,” Gould carries his camera every time he leaves the house, aiming to convey a vibrant and provocative visual narrative about the land, culture and residents of
his current locale.
Marshall Gould was born in Providence, Rhode Island and received his Bachelor of Industrial Design from the College of Visual and Performing Arts, Syracuse University. He currently works in Oakdale, CA, known as the “Cowboy Capital of the World” and Silicon Valley.
