Submerged By Kenda North Exhibiting In Dallas

Professor Kenda North will be exhibiting a series of new photographs, Submerged, at Craighead Green Gallery in Dallas TX.  The exhibition opens on Saturday, January 12th with a reception from 5 to 8 pm.  The work will be on view through February 16th.


Ms. North has explored imagery captured underwater for ten years.  The current work was started at an artist residency, Ondarte, in Akumal, Mexico this summer and completed in various pools in Dallas.   In her artist statement, Ms. North writes “The color blue is a mindset for me, it speaks of desire, daydreams, blue gestures and blue thoughts.  In this state of being submerged, we are brought to a place of sensory awareness and uncertain reality.  Color, reflections and the confusion of materials and figure produce a world both mysterious and defined by light.”


The photographs are produced as large scale archival pigment prints on Hahnemuhle William Turner paper, in limited edition.


This is the fifth one-person exhibition for Ms. North at Craighead Green Gallery.

She has exhibited and published her work in photography nationally and internationally.   Submerged will travel and open at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville in March 2013.


Craighead Green Gallery is located at 1011 Dragon Street, Dallas 75207.  The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 to 5 pm.
