May, The Four Seasons is at once visually stimulating and overwhelmingly colorful. These razor-sharp photographs of flowers taken in various states of life and decay from Eberle's garden in Connecticut are shot in a straightforward manner with natural light. He then slightly manipulates them digitally to transform the mundane into the Rorschach forms they become. Eberle is never certain of how the image will end up looking. The results are always personal to the viewer in the sense of transforming the "figurative into the abstract."Read Less
About the Artist
About Todd Eberle
Eberle gained international recognition for his photographs of Donald Judd's art and furniture that he took at the great sculptor's Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, and elsewhere around the world in the 1990s. Informed by this experience, Eberle's photographs are characterized by an ever-presence sense of control, proportion, and symmetry. His celebrity portraits are notable for their witty eye for design, and his architectural photographs have been praised by the curator Joseph P. Rosa for "proposing fresh ways of seeing, thinking about, and interpreting architecture" and for transforming "the figurative into the abstract." In almost every photo, rich colors—almost too vibrant to believe—grip the viewer's attention.
In his recently published monograph Empire of Space (Rizzoli, 2011), Eberle pairs disparate photographs from throughout his 30-year career to create thought-provoking juxtapositions. Dave Hickey, the eminent art critic, writes in his accompanying essay: "There is always a heartless little sting in these images, a frisson of worldly dissonance, like Degas in a newspaper."Read Less
