Gallery hours Wed – Mon, 11-5
Mar. 2 – Apr. 14: Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present Gene Parulis: Visions and Explorations, with an artist’s opening reception Saturday, March 2, 5-7 pm. The exhibit continues through April 14, and an Artist Talk is scheduled for March 23, 5 pm.
Gene Parulis has been absorbed in photographing the world for fifty years, and his passion for photography is central to his teaching and traveling. He has taught in diverse places from a mountain village in Algeria to Kuwait University, California to Vermont and has exhibited in galleries in the USA and Europe. He has worked closely with writers, illustrating themes relating to spirituality, and personal and professional development. Included among his collaborations are The Twelve Steps of Forgiveness and The Wisdom of the Self by Paul Ferrini, Teaching as a Meditative Practice by Lauren Alderfer and most recently The Meditative Gardiner by Cheryl Wilfong, winner of several Small Press awards.
Parulis’ latest work shows his continued fascination with digitally manipulated imagery. Through city or deep wood, local or abroad, Parulis leads us into places of stunning beauty and clarity, but he uses the always exquisite details to serve his restless and relentless quest to heighten or magnify mystery, mood and movement. He repeats, splits apart, stretches, reverses and then reconfigures objects and spaces. But whether subtly shifted or acutely altered, Parulis’ newly crafted worlds are totally credible as places we have – or would like to – visit and explore.
