Contradictions and That Line about Self-Destruction
September 12 – October 24, 2015
The 39th Street Gallery presents Contradictions and That Line about Self-Destruction an exhibition of new work by photographer Timothy Gerken.
Gerken lives in the Leatherstocking region of Central New York. He teaches writing and manages the Donald G. Butcher Library Gallery at the State University of New York, Morrisville.
Gerken has been a MacDowell Colony Fellow and Edward Albee Foundation Fellow. His education includes a PhD from Fordham University, an MFA from Brooklyn College, an MS from Southern CT State College, and a BS from Clarion University of Pennsylvania.
“I accumulate images and then edit; creating a narrative from ideas I see in the photographs. On the wall, the narrative develops as fiction as the photographs build off each other and through the cultural lens of the viewer, who transfers meaning into the relatively straightforward photographs.” T.Gerken
