In Santa Monica…dnj Gallery (3015 Ocean Park Blvd, SM, 90405) celebrates the art of Dinesh Boaz, Sarah Hadley and Ellen Cantor. The exhibitions will remain on view thru April 18, 2020.
Dinesh Boaz, “Within the Lines” – This exhibition creates a dynamic juxtaposition between the natural landscape and our involvement in it. This fresh perspective is definitely attractive, but also reveals a reflective state which is introspective, as well as contemplative. Dinesh Boaz explores the area beneath him via a helicopter to achieve a ‘top’ view.
Sarah Hadley, “Story Lines” – The series creates a natural, feel-good environment that appeals to the senses, while at the same time, displays an aesthetic value and appreciation. Influenced by the Film Noir genre of the 1950s and 1960s, Sarah Hadley presents women’s independence and strength. The final photographs, compositing several, single images, are formed utilizing an excess amount of light, shadow and texture, all at once.
Ellen Cantor, “Visual DNA…the language of photographs” – Ellen Cantor, in her third solo exhibition with dnj Gallery, observes time and memory, and together how someone or something is transformed within a certain period (from morning to night, summer to winter, or one year to the next). In this body of artwork, she causes the viewers to look closely at the vintage photographs, and ultimately note what is the most significant part and gesture.
On view: March 7 – April 18, 2020
