Opening: December 10th

Fancy and Staple Gallery

Ruins get all the glory, the bigger, the better. Everyone shakes their collective head at the spectacle of the gilded-age theater fallen in on itself, the sanitariums full of weeds, nature reasserting itself through every crack and crevice.

Josef Zimmerman’s show of recent photographs, “Known Particles” at the Fancy and Staple Gallery is having none of that showy dilapidation. To his eye the most evocative examples of entropy are the small ones. A plate, homey and common, sits on a table blackened by time. The point of view is from the person who left the table, deserting the meal, the kitchen and possibly the planet. You have returned to find the only change is the passive passage of days, the rays of the sun striking the evidence of humankind with its invisible, tiny particles and with each infinitesimal blow, knocking off an atom’s worth of memory.

dailydisIt is the intimate quality of Zimmerman’s work that draws you in and glimpses the daily disentegrations of the past, present and future, in equal parts arresting and mundane.
