Big Pictures Los Angeles is pleased to announce Polaroid Black, a group show featuring 23 paintings and 11 works on paper hung salon style, on a black wall. Collectively¬†the installation works to create a dark fog like atmosphere, and envelope the viewer, evoking a sense of mystery. The individual works in the exhibition depict images that can’t quite be perceived or are just emerging from darkness. Paintings of nightscapes, portraits of figures shrouded in shadow, and sheet ghosts populate the show. As one must wait for a Polaroid photo to develop, watching faint images emerge from darkness, this show is about the state of transition in which something hidden becomes revealed.
