WMAC- Seeing Big

Aug 6-10, 13-17, 20-24, and 27-31, 2019 / All Day

Calendar: Exhibit

Spartanburg professional photographer Thomas Koenig will present more than 20 large-format photographs of extreme close-up of small things or details in other artists’ creative work in his exhibit Seeing Big at West Main Artists Co-op, Aug. 6-31.
    The exhibit will be free for public viewing Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Co-op’s west Main Street location. Also, a free and public reception will be held on Thursday, Aug. 15, 5-9 p.m. during the city’s monthly ArtWalk.
    “The idea for this exhibit is constructed around photographic images that show arrangements that in their native physical appearance are very small and we would normally not recognize as things of visual interest,” Koenig said. “The exhibit is constructed around a series of large-scale digital prints that are paired in part with the original artwork that they were based on. These things can be objects in repetition or can be close-up looks at items that have an interesting component or texture that the human eye may not recognize as visually interesting by looking at it without magnification. By producing and displaying oversized prints of these extreme closeups, attention can be brought to the beauty and aesthetics of items, materials, textures, and arrangements that are really tiny.”
