Man Ray

Running from 12th April to 31st May.

10am - 4pm, Monday - Saturday - and at other times by prior appointment.

Man Ray exhibition at Tristans Gallery photographers in Wadebridge Cornwall.
A pioneer of 21st century photography and developer of solarization, Man
Ray is regarded as the consummate surrealist photographer and one of the
greatest photographers that ever lived.

The images chosen by the gallery director Edward Davis cover some of
Man Ray¹s best known works including glass eye and the kiss as well
as the more surreal. Tristans Gallery gives collectors a rare opportunity
to purchase imagery.

Man Rays works are rarely seen. This exhibition provides Cornwall and
Tristans Gallery with a remarkable opportunity.

Supporting Man Ray are two prestigious London based photographers. They
are exhibiting a selection of their personal work chosen to run in accordance
with the Man Ray pictures.

Bowran exhibits a series of figurative images within the theme of
spirals. Figures entwining into sympathetic curves with the background
inspired by the works of Frantisek Drtikol and painters such as Giordio
Morandi and Sir William Nicholson. Wonderfully quiet is an appropriate
explanation for Bowrans work.

Roff with a more dynamic approach is exhibiting a collection of limited
edition platinum prints. Always capturing new elements, the key to his
work is spontaneity. He seems always to be aware of foreground/background
relationships and in awe of what he sees. His solution lies within his
fascination of ever changing light and shade.

This will be one of the most exciting exhibitions to see this year.
