Rich Gilligan: Driftwood Editions Book Launch & Exhibition
Author Rich Gilligan launches his new book
All Sorts of Impossible Things in our new studio space as part of our 'Hen's Teeth Summer Series'.
In addition to the book launch, a selection of Rich’s photography from the book will be exhibited. The evening will also feature an artist talk with Rich.
All Sorts of Impossible Things is a personal body of work exploring the static hum and unique rhythm of everyday life in the city of Newburgh, New York. These photographs are an observation of the collective anxiety of a city caught between a wave of intense regeneration and a long history of economic struggle.
Gilligan’s almost forensic and fictional approach creates an ambiguous space where the viewer is left to navigate their own personal journey through a landscape of uncertainty and confusion. This sense of disorientation and fleeting physical beauty produces an atmosphere that is as familiar and comforting as it is out of reach.
Driftwood Editions is an independent publisher producing limited editions of work they find interesting worldwide by Rich Gilligan.
