Joan Belmar: ONCE
Exhibition Dates: October 7-October 28, 2011

Joan Belmar uses iconographies; bikes, spinning tops, toys, etc. often nostalgic items, they reference a time in our collective past that is impossible to recreate, but remains important to remember. Belmar works with the themes of time, change and movement, sometimes ironically and humorously.

Born in Chile, Joan Belmar moved to Spain at age 24 and began professionally painting. Four years later, 1999, he came to Washington DC and was granted permanent residency in the U.S. based on extraordinary artistic merit in 2003.

Keith Lane: iwishyouwerehere
Exhibition Dates: October 7- October 28, 2011

iwishyouwerehere is an on-going conceptual photography project. The project started as a personal mission for Keith to look closer at the subject and through the restraints of the iPhone, to make more intentional images. Documenting his own story allowed Lane a separate space to define that process through this series of iPhone photographs. The iPhone itself allowed the project to be minimalistic and consistent: without the requirement of a professional camera. Lane could use a tool he always had with him, to capture those moments with ease. Through the technology of the iPhone-and the filters, the apps-Lane could concentrate on more formal qualities, and how they interact with the subject matter itself.
