JEFFERY BECTON: THE VIEW OUT HIS WINDOW [AND IN HIS MIND'S EYE]
Ewing Gallery of Art + Architecture (UTK) / 1715 Volunteer Blvd. November 7, 2016 - December 11, 2016
Jeffery Becton is a photographer and image-maker who lives on Deer Isle, a rocky and forested island off the coast of Maine. Becton makes work, in part, about his surroundings. The extraordinary sweeping coastal views that are such a part of daily life when one lives by the sea are often incorporated into his images. Equally critical is internal life, both the space inside the home (and the comfort and protection it provides from northern New England’s inclement weather), and the introspective and contemplative space that enlivens one’s imagination, which is no doubt encouraged in this stunning and remote location.
The artist will be present.
