See image: Beach Hut #1, 2015, archival pigment print, 16 x 18 inches, edition of 10 and 8 x 9 inches, edition of 10
Selections from her 2002 series, Beach Boxes, will also be exhibited. The artist will be in attendance for the opening reception.
Judy Gelles’ Beach Huts document brightly colored, beachfront shelters that dot a stretch of shoreline in Bournemouth, England. Each of the seventy-five huts is painted in a unique tint inspired by the surrounding landscape as it appears from sunrise to sunset. Like her earlier series, Beach Boxes, of similar structures in Melbourne, Australia, the new images are straightforward renderings with simplified backgrounds. Arranged in analogous color sets of grids and rows, the configurations are typological studies highlighting uniformity and variation.
