Affinities and Digressions is an exhibition of work by Emmitt Booher and Louis Ocepek.
Booher, primarily a photographer, and Ocepek, a painter, printmaker, and designer, are both discerning observers of the world around them. They share the preciseness of vision, with great attention to detail and technical accomplishment. While Booher records the broad vastness and contrasts of the Western landscape, Ocepek probes the abstract, closely observed complexities of nature. The works explore space and form, color and monochrome, literal and abstract, at times obliquely suggesting an interplay between humans and nature. The affinities are not always obvious, and the digressions are often subtle, making for a thoughtful and rich visual experience.
