Photography In Art


April 24, 1997|By John Dorsey

"Beyond Narrative," at University of Maryland Baltimore County's Kuhn Library Gallery, combines the work of two artists who employ photography in their work. Jenny Lynn creates photographic collages. Their juxtapositions of dissimilar elements gives them an elusive, surrealistic presence. Jill Mathis, with her blown-up photographs of the American rodeo, attempts to capture its fast-paced action and its telling details. We don't need to see more than part of a body at an angle and a hand raised in stuttering motion to infer that somebody's being thrown from a horse.

The accompanying catalog contains an essay by Tom Beck, curator of UMBC's Albin O. Kuhn Library and Gallery.

At the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery of University of Maryland Baltimore County, 1000 Hilltop Circle, Catonsville. noon to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays (to 8 p.m. Thursdays), 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, through June 21. For information, call 410-455-2270.
