SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – The Art & Design Department of South Suburban College is pleased to announce a special guest artist exhibition titled “Light Rendering Space,” by artist Susan L. Moore in the Photo Four Gallery from August 23th through October 5. The Photo Four Gallery is located in Room 4338 on the 4th Floor of SSC’s Main Campus.
Susan L. Moore received a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia College in Chicago, a Masters in Art Education at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and most recently, in 2003, she earned a Masters in Fine Art from Washington University, School of Art in St. Louis, Missouri. Currently, Moore is a Professor at Indiana University South Bend where she teaches photography and serves as Chair of the Fine Arts Department. Moore’s photography has been exhibited nationally and internationally in individual shows as well as juried exhibitions. Her recent landscape images were selected for exhibition at the South Bend Museum of Art and she has received grants from the Indiana Arts Commission to support her landscape photography projects
Moore stated, “The photographic process begins with a consideration of light and subject. In these minimalist images of empty places, the quality of light becomes the subject. The film emulsion renders a delicate pattern, commonly known as grain, from the subtle texture of these interior spaces. This, along with the visual qualities of tonality, composition, and space are indicative of the photographic process as a form of representation. The camera, by its very nature, mediates between the subject and the print. The abstraction exaggerates this distinction. In contemporary culture saturated with images, the camera becomes a powerful tool in forming an understanding of reality.”
SSC Galleries are open at minimum Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The galleries are closed on weekends and holidays. The public is welcome to visit art exhibitions and receptions at no charge.
