Solo Exhibition: “Good Luck with the Sun”
Women and Their Work Gallery, Austin, TX.
opening reception: April 28, 7-9pm.
Exhibition runs through June 7, 2018.
The word “luck” is often used when talking about sunny days or meteorological conditions. No matter where one is located geographically, the climate is critical to survival, and every day, we are at the mercy of what the weather delivers to us. Luck is also an important factor in Krista Steinke’s recent body of work, where trial and error, chance, and imperfection become part of her photographic inquiry. Using homemade pinhole cameras, extended multiple exposures, and other unconventional techniques, Steinke explores our greatest energy source – the sun and photography’s unique role in how we engage with the planet’s closest star. Relationships emerge between time and space, light and dark, micro and macro, and the personal and the universal.
