Captured in an Instant: Abstract Views of the City
Next month in the City Gallery, see urban Indy in a whole new light when we present Captured in an Instant: Abstract Views of the City by photographer, Darrell Staggs. Staggs’ images represent what the artist “sees” as an extension of where most people only “look”. His work captures the abstract beauty that is all around, but often missed.
“My inspirations come from the words of Henry David Thoreau: ‘It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see’… ‘Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?’” Staggs’ desire is to provide visitors with the opportunity to see the world in a new way.
But, we need to train our minds to not only look–and, certainly Indianapolis offers plenty to view–but, to to look for more. It takes effort, but somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be discovered.
