Maruschak's work from Denmark exhibits at Site:Brooklyn gallery in Brooklyn, NY, as part of A Point of View: Contemporary Photography. This international juried exhibition explores current ideas, subjects, and processes in contemporary photography.
“Point of View presents the work of 45 artists, whose diverse perspectives indicate the breadth of photographic practices among artists today. Personal and observational, abstract and narrative, digitally-constructed and traditionally- crafted, photography remains a choice medium for artists both to frame the world as they see it and create the world as they wish to see it.Themes run through the selected photographs and draw them into conversations with one another, including: portraits of communities, landscapes rich with the markers of place, figures transformed into expressionist strokes and abstract gestures, the objects and detritus of contemporary consumerism and its anxieties, memorials to self and city, among others.Throughout, the photographs in this exhibition offer viewers an opportunity to look closely and reconsider our own point of view.” I seek finely crafted photographs that present layered ideas and subjects. I am equally interested in documentary, studio and conceptual photographic practices and I am especially pleased to find artists engaged with how the material and visual language of photography is evolving today.”
