Uta Barth's new images focus on flowers in jars photographed on a white desk over many months. Her intention was to mimic that quick glance one takes in passing, to pause that moment, and allow the slow play of light and time to provide a contemplative visual experience. Barth's exhibit will include diptychs and triptychs which she says "are occasionally interrupted by bright red optical afterimages and that bright flash of color we see, as we close and rest our eyes, if only for a moment."
Uta Barth had a survey exhibition at Site Santa Fe earlier this year. Phaidon published a separate book of those images entitled "Uta Barth". Her work will be included in an exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art this summer. Barth's photographs are in many museum collections including: the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; The Tate Gallery, London, UK; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA.
