Halpern exhibition at Egeran Gallery
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
Egeran Galeri is pleased to present “Fear for Poet and Drink Whiskey,” an exhibition of new photographs by New York-based Tamar Halpern.
Utilizing both digital photography and traditional darkroom processes, Halpern creates abstract compositions that playfully challenge the expectations of photographic images.
This is the artist’s first solo show in Istanbul.
Halpern’s works defy easy categorization. She combines various methodologies, such as photography, scanning, digital alteration, sponging, wiping, taping and printing her way to the final image. Through this multilayered process that also incorporates drawing and painting, Halpern expands the definition of her medium and challenges accepted art categories.
