6 Bridges Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by photographer Erik Hansen titled “Geometry”. The exhibit will be on view from August 24 through October 1, 2022. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 12:00–5:00pm. The exhibit will also be hosted online at 6Bridges.Gallery/Geometry. An Opening Reception will be held September 10, 2022 from 5:00–8:00pm.
Hansen begins his pieces with an original or series of photographs he has previously taken. From there, he creates additional shapes enhancing the image using Photoshop’s myriad tools. The evolution from start to finish allows him freedom to explore beyond the bounds of traditional photography.
Hansen has been exhibiting his photography in the US and internationally for over twenty years. Hansen’s dominant focus in his art is the constant employment of imagination. Because of constant creative invention, various themes wander into new and exciting visions. As a consequence, Hansen does not maintain a signature style. But, one constant is his interest in art that brings something from the inside out, rather than capturing observations of the outside world. It’s a process that demands a deep exploration of states of mind and mystery. Marjorie Kay of Galatea Fine Art said, “There is a coolness of vision in the photography of Erik Hansen.”
