WHERE: Quad City International Airport Gallery, 2200 69th Ave., Moline, IL
WHO: Photography by Fritz Goeckner and Matthew Terry; ceramics by Marcia Tiffany
Quad City Arts Art @ the Airport presents Fritz Goeckner of Burlington, IA; Matthew Terry of Davenport, IA and Marcia Tiffany of Fairfield, IA for the months of September and October.
Fritz Goeckner presents his series of photographs entitled “Occupied Roads”. This series is an exploration of the constant speeding vehicles that travel through the once static rural landscape. Goeckner practices what he calls “free-color” photography wherein there is only color utilized in the printing process. He considers the ghostly panoramic images appropriate for the diminished farming population and the bright colors indicative of a vibrant future.
Matthew Terry presents “Revisiting Past Exposures”, a series of printed color images aligned with modern scenes. This series is inspired by the idea that when you see a place you create an image in your mind and until revisiting that location you view it as you last remember it. It is a commentary on the way we compare the past and present and the part perspective plays with memory and visual relationships.
Marcia Tiffany is a ceramicist who crafts vibrant ceremonial vessels. Tiffany is drawn to double walled vessels on both a design and a metaphorical level.
She considers it a way to explore inner and outer relationships and honor the sacred in life and art through artistic expression.
