Traces/Dreamscape

Thomas Deans Fine Art continues its program of presenting contrasting exhibitions with its October openings. Traces features painters Allison B. Cooke and Carl Linstrum and sculptor Eileen Braun. Dreamscape is an immersive installation by Atlanta photographer Mary Anne Mitchell, presented in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography.

The title Traces suggests both the vestiges of something disappearing and the outlines of something evolving. Painters Allison B. Cooke and Carl Linstrum create work in oil and wax. Originally a figurative artist, Milwaukee painter Allison B. Cooke turned to abstraction after being inspired by ancient walls in Italy that reveal many layers of past and present. Well-known Atlanta artist Carl Linstrum has created a body of work in which transitory shadows of flora are embellished with delicate traceries inspired by tilework the artist saw in Portugal this summer. Atlanta artist Eileen Braun’s organic openwork sculptures that appear cast in bronze, reflect shapes in transition, suggest either remnants and emerging structures.

Mary Anne Mitchell’s Dreamscape is an immersive installation that invites the visitor to wander into and explore dreamlike stories depicted through photography. Created in situ, the installation is a further evolution of the artist’s long-term project Meet Me in My Dreams. The use of video in addition to photography draws the visitor into this imaginary environment. Shot with wet plate collodion, Dreamscape speaks to family, memory, and the passage of time.
