dnj Gallery is pleased to present three unique exhibitions that examine humanism from the distinct perspective of artists: Dinesh Boaz , Sarah Hadley , and Ellen Cantor.

In the Main Gallery for “Within the Lines,” Boaz creates a dynamic juxtaposition between the natural landscape and man’s involvement in it. He explores areas beneath him via helicopter to achieve a ‘top’ view. Emphasizing lines, colors, shapes and an overall pattern. The perspective at first glance is incredibly attractive, but on a deeper dive, the images reveal more and more, leaving the viewer in a reflective state which is introspective, as well as contemplative. “By honing-in on the specific details of the earth below, I can highlight the remoteness and stillness in water, sand and rugged space like terrain, but also connect back to our existence with human form and the life within,” says Boaz.

In Gallery II, “Storylines,” Hadley is influenced by the Film Noir genre. For her first show with the gallery, she creates images that elicits a sense of nostalgia while modernizing the traits of femininity as we know them today. “ The images are intentionally constructed both in and out of the camera to depict intimate female joys, sorrows, dreams and desires,” says Hadley. The final photographs, compositing several, single images, are formed utilizing an excess amount of light, shadow and texture simultaneously.

For the Installation Room , Ellen Cantor returns for her third solo show with dnj Gallery. “Visual DNA … the language of photographs,” Cantor highlights memories moving through time, observing how the intimate gestures of people can be reconstructed from day to night, summer to winter, year to year and decade to decade. “ By photographing and re-contextualizing precious memories, I have sought to understand how life proceeds, and then, ultimately disappears. I document the artifacts of the past in order to enrich the present,” says Cantor.

Colored cut-out shapes are applied or cropped onto vintage photographs, creating a visual language that focus the eye on the most significant human expression in that moment.
