GREGORY CREWDSON TWILIGHT PDF

About Reception for the artist: Saturday, June 29, 6 — 8pm Gagosian Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of twenty new photographs by Gregory Crewdson. Crewdson continues his ongoing series of elaborately staged, large-scale color photographs that explore the psychological underside of the American vernacular. The photographs combine a realist aesthetic sensibility with a highly orchestrated interplay of cinematic lighting, staging, and special effects. This collision between the normal and the paranormal produces a tension that serves to transform the topology of the suburban landscape into a place of wonder and anxiety. Submerged in water, a lifeless woman stares blankly upwards, as she lies in a flooded living room. Sitting at a dinner room table with his father and sister, an adolescent boy witnesses his absent mother appear nude at the front door, wet with rain and mud, carrying uprooted flowers from the garden.

Framed by a picture window, a lone man is viewed ascending a magnificent flowering vine that has mysteriously erupted from the front lawn of a nocturnal suburban street. In conjunction with this exhibition, Harry N. Abrams published a hardcover book of the complete Twilight series with an introduction by Rick Moody, available in bookstores.

Gregory Crewdson is an internationally exhibited artist. He is the subject of numerous monographs and articles.

Gregory Crewdson

In this series of intensely, almost luridly coloured and exuberantly detailed images, Crewdson employs a cinematic, directorial mode of photography, the culmination of weeks of planning and complicated, behind-the-scenes production. This series of images has become increasingly dark, penetrating the psychological disquiet at the heart of the American family. In another, a pregnant girl dressed in a nightdress stands in a garden that is bathed in the golden light emitted by a swarm of fireflies. Staring at something beyond the picture frame, she crushes a firefly into her rounded stomach. Several of the images possess narratives that are mythic in proportion and seemingly driven by a sense of quasi-religious task and ritual. In other images, subjects are engrossed in odd, domestic chores such as carving holes in the living room floor or uprooting a huge tree from the rafters of an otherwise standard bedroom.
