Eileen Quinlan

Dec 9, 2010 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM



The MFA in Visual Studies presents photographer Eileen Quinlan as part of the 2010-2011 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Eileen Quinlan is interested in the false transparency of the photographic image. For her, it’s not a window, but a mirror. To force an engagement with the surface of this illusion, she employs crude alienation effects. The process of building pictures with a limited set of materials is illustrated, serving to further highlight the photograph’s constructed nature.

Produced via the most common tricks of the commercial photo trade, the “Smoke & Mirrors” pictures are straightforward still-life photographs, unmanipulated in the darkroom or through digital craft.
