Ghost Notes Interview

An inter­view with Sager | Braud­is Gallery’s Direc­tor Han­nah Reeves about my new series Ghost Notes that debuted in her gallery last fall was pub­lished on the gallery’s web­site. Thanks Han­nah for your insight­ful ques­tions. I trea­sure my long stand­ing part­ner­ship with the gallery!

Right now I’m adding new pieces to the series and will be exhibit­ing them next month at the Main Street Fort Worth Arts Fes­ti­val or you can con­tact Han­nah at the Sauger Braud­is Gallery to view their remain­ing pieces.

From the Sager | Braudis Website:

Chris Dahlquist is known for unique and painstak­ing prepa­ra­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion of her pho­tographs, adding depth and res­o­nance in each series by print­ing on spe­cial­ly-pre­pared sur­faces. While at its heart her new work is land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy, her cap­ture of tem­po­rary, fog- or smoke-obscured scenes, com­bined with phys­i­cal translu­cen­cy and lay­er­ing of prints, speaks to mys­tery, still­ness, and awe.

Gallery Direc­tor Han­nah Reeves asks Dahlquist about her medi­um, method, and con­cept, and how view­ers can approach and under­stand the new series cur­rent­ly on exhib­it.

 

Reeves: How do you describe your medi­um? To list it as pho­tog­ra­phy feels over­ly sim­ple, giv­en your unique process and com­bi­na­tion of mate­ri­als. Con­tin­ue read­ing »

To Bring us Together


The arts and human­i­ties define who we are as a peo­ple. That is their pow­er ― to remind us of what we each have to offer, and what we all have in com­mon. To help us under­stand our his­to­ry and imag­ine our future. To give us hope in the moments of strug­gle and to bring us togeth­er when noth­ing else will.” -– Michelle Oba­ma

Consequences of the Photograph


  “The good pho­to­graph is not the object, the con­se­quences of the pho­to­graph are the objects. So that no one would say, how did you do it, where did you find it, but they would say that such things could be.” – Dorothea Lange

Impress Upon the Soul


Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flow­ers, stu­pen­dous glac­i­ers and crys­tal snowflakes — every form of ani­mate or inan­i­mate exis­tence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.” — Ori­son Swett Mar­den
