A founding member of the Longyear Gallery in Margaretville, Frank Manzo has also exhibited his photographs at the Roxbury Arts Group, the Salmagundi Club and at the Catskill Center’s Erpf Gallery.
Since photographs strive to capture the visual effect of the temporal changes in light that lend an atmospheric sense to a two dimensional image and the quality and changes of light inform the image, assuring that each image is unique, the challenge is to create both an interesting composition with painterly qualities that resent to the viewer more than one interpretation, thus allowing one to see different aspects each time it is viewed.
Viewers will perceive layers of images that require scrutiny to determine what is ‘inside’ and what is the reflection or ‘outside,’ notes Manzo. “In many reflective surfaces, the variation in the plane of the surface further breaks up the reflected image, creating and abstract composition akin to cubist paintings.
