Photography for me is a hunt for mystery, enigma, the untold story. Indeed, every photograph is a temporal mystery, a snapshot. For a fraction of a second we see the real world in sharp focus, but as time retreats and advances from the moment the image is captured, the mystery deepens. – Gary Anthes

Pam Frederick & Veronica Szalus
Urban | Oxide
The urban environment is fluid, continually shifting, adjusting, decaying and renewing. We may notice it daily, either incrementally or in its entirety. This phenomenon is highlighted in Urban | Oxide, a collaboration of two artists, Pam Frederick and Veronica Szalus. Frederick's photographic collages capture and then re-mix street views of Paris, London, New York and Washington, DC. Szalus's work explores active rust and creates free-standing dimensional elements that consist of current building materials such as concrete and rebar.
Throughout the exhibit, the artists invite the viewer to consider the interconnectedness among development, reconstruction, and decay, as well as the distance between memory and documentation.
