Bridges are big in real life and insects are small, right? But in the art photographs soon to be on display in the exhibit “Big and Little” at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists (BFUU), bridges and insects are the same size.
David Garnick is a fine arts photographer who will display 6 prints from his Thirty Six Views series featuring the Golden Gate Bridge and 6 prints from his Insecta series. The two series share an aesthetic style and offer a nice contract between large and small subject matter. Spoiler alert: the insects, although small in life, are quite large in these photos.
Garnick grew up in a family of artists and scientists. He studied mathematics, computer science, furniture making, drawing, sculpture and photography. After years as a professor of mathematics and computer science, he left academia to devote himself full time to his artistic photography. His scientific training plays out in the extreme detail visible in his photographs.
In addition to his own projects, Garnick collaborates with museums to create compelling imagery for display. He also curates and directs exhibits featuring work by other photographers from around the world. Locally, his work is available at the ACCI Gallery, 1652 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley, 94709.
The Artist’s Reception to open the show will take place on Sunday, April 12, 12:30-3:00 pm. After the artist’s talk, Q & A and gallery walk, the reception will conclude with light refreshments.
