NEW YORK, NY.- Cheim & Read presents an exhibition of new work by Adam Fuss. The show is accompanied by a full color catalogue with essays by Joseph Koerner and Mark Siegeltuch. Fuss’s previous show with the gallery was in 2003. Adam Fuss was born in London in 1961, and has lived and worked in New York City since 1982. He is best known for life size, evocative photograms of babies, embroidered Victorian baptismal dresses, eviscerated rabbits, swimming snakes. His imagery, often originating in the natural world, is hued by the spiritual and poetic; his process, which distills the essence of the photographic moment – a flash of light on a sensitized surface – emphasizes themes of transformation and perception. Fuss seeks not to describe an object with the detailed clarity of traditional photography, but rather in ghostly manifestations of light and shadow.
