Finding the Quiet: Recent Images of Taiwan
The photographs presented in this exhibtion were taken two years ago in July, in Taipei, Dansui, Jinmen, and Lukang, names perhaps familiar only to Taiwanese or visitors to the island. Information about the location, Serago says, is secondary to what they represent. The images continue her search for connection, quietness, and meaning from a place filled with culturally specific signifiers. Content with the search itself, Serago is happy to leave questions like "what does this say? What does this mean? Why are there three cups drying outside?" unanswered. She is comfortable with the mystery and hidden meanings.
Inspired by a variety of photographers, from Andre Kertesz, Walker Evans and Robert Mapplethorpe to Lois Conner and Juliet Margaret Cameron, their influence is evidenced in her framing of landscapes, her choice of subjects, and her contemplative lens.
Ms. Serago's work will be on display from June 1st to June 27th. Don't miss this opportunity to experience the quiet for yourself.
