Jessica Cantlin: Latitude

Winston Wächter Fine Art is pleased to announce Jessica Cantlin’s first main gallery solo exhibition, Latitude.

Photographer and travel writer Jessica Cantlin ventures to remote locations of the globe, capturing the striking beauty of areas most of us will never visit. Her endless sense of wonder and dedication to the road not taken creates dramatic narratives in her work where weather, land, light and sky act as characters and guides. By documenting the simultaneous peacefulness and dramatic tension of these tenuous regions, Cantlin helps us appreciate and respect the power and importance of the natural world. Cantlin’s imagery reminds us of the fragility of the earth and of the urgency to confront climate change, and all we stand to lose.

The works included in Latitude are from the artist’s recent travels to Iceland and Lençóis Maranhenses, Brazil.  A stark contrast in location, Cantlin’s photographs explore the ephemeral quality of light and color in regions that are susceptible to dramatic and transient weather conditions. As part of her continuing study of the role that weather plays in how we experience the landscape, these photographs act as witness to the sublime beauty found in some of these most vulnerable environments.

Jessica Cantlin is a fine art photographer and writer. After leaving her career as a successful attorney she searched for ways to “feed her wanderlust.” By creating the popular blog under the same name, Cantlin is able to document her travels and share her experiences with the hope of inspiring others to appreciate the beauty surrounding them.

Ian McMahon Exhibit

Ian McMahon received his MFA in Sculpture and Extended Media from Virginia Commonwealth University and his BFA in Ceramics from the New York State College of Ceramics, Alfred University. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship; a New York Foundation of the Arts Artist Fellowship; and the Virginia Groot Foundation Fellowship. From mobile tractor-trailers to abandoned warehouses and galleries, McMahon’s work confronts and transforms both unconventional and conventional spaces. His sculptures challenge the permanence of art and place through performative and material-focused temporal constructions. Currently living in Newburgh, New York he is also the co-founder and co-director of the Belfry, an artist-run exhibition venue. McMahon’s work has been shown both nationally and internationally at venues including Crane Arts, Philadelphia; The Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland; Pierogi Boiler Room, New York; G-Fine Arts, Washington, D.C.; Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts, Omaha; Suyama Space, Seattle; T & H Gallery, Boston, Tang Contemporary, Beijing, China; Practice Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA; among others.
