Press Release

On view in the Kingston Project Space is Reflecting (Then and Now), collaborative work by gallery member Cree Bruins and visiting artist Sarah Hollis Perry. Here they continue a project started in 2017 for a Boston Sculptors Gallery invitational in honor of their former teacher, Joyce McDaniel. Bruins and Hollis Perry have each worked throughout their careers extensively with film and alternate photographic technologies. Sarah worked for many years in the photo lab of Edwin Land at the Polaroid Corporation. Cree grew up in Rochester, New York and has a long family background with Eastman Kodak. With this show they've come together, reusing the all-but-obsolete materials of earlier photographic production as their medium. They play with scale and repetition using 35mm, 120mm and SX-70 formats combined with mirrors common to both Kodak and Polaroid to develop the framework for their physical structures and resulting digital images.
