Installation at Handley-Hicks Gallery, Ft. Worth TX, 1999
"Notices of Allen Gray" is a body of work consisting of photographs, assemblages and small installation pieces based on historic source materials, including early 20th century family snapshots, written materials and objects. The photographs all exhibit errors on the part of the camera operator at the time the picture was taken. The most notable error is the phenomenon of parallax; therefore, heads of people are missing in the pictures. The resultant images and assemblage pieces examine the limitations of photography and memory to depict specific persons and moments in time.
