After my last mentor meeting with Marilyn Waligore, last week, she mentioned an artist whose work she saw while in San Francisco for the national SPE...Maggie Preston. Preston does amazing photography work that has many aesthetic and philosophical qualities of my work, including my current A Ply series.
From her current show at SF Camerawork, the write:
"San Francisco-based Maggie Preston's practice represents an exploration of the basic concepts of the photographic medium and engages the complexities of its representational value. The technical strategies and critical approaches employed by Preston at once explore the process and materiality (or aesthetic translation) of photographic objects, as well as their presentation and social reception."
