AMSTERDAM.- A solo exhibition with photographs
from the New York- based artist, Maura Sullivan (1971). Sullivan makes short
movies in a single photograph. You can search for the meaning, the words, the
tension, to try to explain the story. But not searching for a deeper meaning
will still leave you with beautiful, well styled, photography. The beauty is in
the restraint: the images reveal enough to draw you in and withhold enough to
make you curious. Sullivan is intrigued with dreams, a longing for the past and
the tension of the moment in between, when something is just about to happen or
right after.
