Specific features the work of Mark Gergen, along with photographs by Brad Austin Smith, Mason Paul, and Amy Whitaker. Hard-edged, multi-layered, and labor-intensive, Gergen’s work is characterized by sophistication and fine technique. His projects address the concept of impermanence; each piece utilizes sculptural photography and mixed media to act as visual record of deterioration. He develops his projects as transitional social documents in an ever-changing world. Through this documented transformation he focuses on the decline and rebirth of a landscape. Gergen is regularly exhibited with Synthetica-m.
