Anne Miller’s “Street Play” — a collection of images that reflects her response to the urban landscape — will be on display Nov. 1-26 at The Artery, 207 G St.
Rather than focusing on architecture or typical street scenes, Miller moves in close with her camera to capture intriguing details hidden in plain sight. Abstracting from the original context, Miller illuminates the surprising beauty and spirit of play tucked in the alleys and byways of many cities.
“I am not interested in celebrating waste and decay,” she said. “What attracts me to these areas are the colors, shapes, textures and patterns that I find when I extract a small portion of a scene into the viewfinder of my camera and let that de-contextualized scene fire my imagination.
“I find joy, humor and playfulness, beauty and richness even in a grimy alley if that is what I am looking for. My hope is to share my ‘scene’ with others in the hopes that it will convey a message that you can find beauty and joy wherever you go if you carry it within you and if you are looking for it.”
The images in the “Street Play” collection were taken San Francisco (Mission District, Hayes Valley), San Luis Obispo, Davis, Sacramento, Woodland and Johnson City, Texas.
The artist’s reception coincides with the Davis Second Friday ArtAbout from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 8. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday and until 9 p.m. on Friday.
