Architecture Speaks In Black & White – photography by Michael Flicek
Architecture has much to say about many aspects of human existence. Structures have voice. Much as the great thinkers and philosophers throughout time have struggled with universal human concerns like truth, beauty, and spirituality or logic and metaphysics, so have architects throughout time worked to interpret these human concerns through their use of light, space, and form. All of this has been, and is, done within the context of a time and place that carries with it particular cultural, political, and economic conditions and particular climactic and geographic conditions. From the early drawings on cave walls to the utility of log houses in early America to the icons of modernity across time in the great cities of the world, human design has and will continue to leave a mark on our world. – excerpt from Michael Flicek’s artist statement
The Corridor Gallery proudly presents “Architecture Speaks In Black & White”, a photographic exhibit by Casper resident and artist, Michael Flicek. Michael has been shown in numerous galleries nationwide and is an award-winning photographer with a vast resume´. Architecture Speaks In Black & White will be Michael Flicek’s second solo show to Casper, Wyoming.
Michael is partial to black and white photography working in the digital realm. Capturing the image on locations is only the beginning of his process. Once Michael composes a photograph, he’s on to the next step of immersion within his “digital darkroom”. Michael then manipulates the image to fit his vision of a final work of art. Once satisfied, he creates immaculate digital prints in limited edition on archival quality glossy baryta finished paper. Due to the high quality print and stock used, Michael’s photographs take on a traditional look.
“Architecture Speaks In Black & White” will only be featured for 3 days at the Corridor gallery. The press and public are invited to attend the free opening reception on Friday, May 20th at 7pm. The public and press are invited to attend an artist’s talk with Michael on Saturday, May 21st at 2:00pm. Michael’s work will show only through Sunday, May 22nd. We hope to see you there!
