“Such an eye! We are blessed that Ms. Vicki Whicker is able to capture and reveal the glory of natural reality with such exquisite precision, taste and charm.

Cherry Branch Gallery presents Vicki Whicker’s iPhotography- Dunga Brook Diary: A Year of Seeing Differently

April 6th, 2013….Cherry Valley, NY- Cherry Branch Gallery will be hosting an opening reception for central New York artist, Vicki Whicker. For the month of April the gallery will feature a small collection of her iPhotography- Dunga Brook Diary: A Year of Seeing Differently.

In the spring of 2011, Vicki Whicker left Los Angeles for central New York to renovate an 1820’s farmhouse that she found on Facebook and purchased, sight unseen. The rundown property, she would later learn, was named “Dunga Brook,” and was once a thriving dairy farm spanning over 2,000 acres in Otsego county.

While waiting for renovations to make Dunga Brook habitable, Whicker explored Otsego county using her iPhone to capture the world above and below her feet. It was this impromptu exercise that marked her personal awakening to the astounding beauty of our state; beauty that has surely been here since Dunga Brook’s heydey.

“iPhoneography as a mobile method for making art and as a creative movement was exploding around the world while I was stalking the flora and fauna of my new home. Coming from LA, I was in a paradise…the lush trees, the long country roads lined with Queen Anne’s Lace big as pie plates, the crimson and gold fall leaves, those first pristine snow flakes. The more I shot, the more I saw; the more I saw, the more I wanted to see…by the time my house was done 6 months had passed and I had produced over 20,000 iPhotos, it was a kind of madness…through the lens of my iPhone I fell completely in love with central New York.”

Dunga Brook Diary: A Year of Seeing Differently, is Whicker’s first iPhoneography exhibit and features a select group of her evocative 8x 8 limited edition images printed on metal.

Schedule of Events
APRIL 6th, Saturday, 5-7pm: OPENING RECEPTION Live Jazz (pre-sales 12-4pm)

Like your work. Mighty Teasel–its “pointing fingers,” its suggestion of “one against many,” its visual expression of nonconformity. And Hen House–how in surroundings of termination and ruin there she is, the red hen. Alive. Centered, Centering. And In a Dog’s Eye–the remarkable depth of field that we sense, the mirror, the reflection of something neither dog nor human nor god nor world made.
