Photographs by Jack Fulton
May 21 - June 18, 2016
RECEPTION: Saturday, May 21st, 6-9pm
SMITH ANDERSEN NORTH is pleased to present the photographic works of Jack Fulton. In Fictive Reality, Fulton grapples with the photographic problem of representation, by blending text, realism and fiction to create a narrative. Through post-production, Jack Fulton manipulates his images digitally and physically to provoke the reader to discern meaning through a figurative language structure. Jack Fulton's work coalesces the many possible interpretations of photographic referents into a clear and direct response, exposing the multiplicity of the visual language. Fictive Reality is a compelling visual response to the language of contemporary photography, combining fiction and realism to create a narrative that is simultaneously intimate and political.
"Reality is a photograph, is a believable substitute for reality: an echo.
A painting is fictive: from the imaginative mind." - Jack Fulton
