The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
The Dark Wood
The imagery of The Dark Wood— a frozen gorge in winter; a collection of abandoned casts of
ancient Greco-Roman sculpture; the ancient trees of the Pacific Coast—brings human experience
in parallel with natural phenomena. How do history and the construction of knowledge mirror
the flow and stasis of the natural world? What is our agency in light of constant change? How
do shifting ideas of “truth” and “authenticity” inform our narratives about the world and
ourselves? Through the stillness of looking, the photographs in The Dark Wood reveal common
cycles that are contained within personal, cultural, and natural histories.
