JOEL MEYEROWITZ - BETWEEN THE DOG AND THE WOLF & MORANDI, CÉZANNE AND ME
41 East 57th Street
10022 New York
Two exhibitions of photographs by Joel Meyerowitz will be on view at
Howard Greenberg Gallery from September 7 to October 21, 2017. "Between the Dog and the Wolf" presents images from the 1970s and 80s made in those mysterious moments around dusk. Many of the works will be on display for the first time. "Morandi, Cézanne and Me" surveys Meyerowitz's recent still lifes of objects from Paul Cézanne's studio in Aix-en-Provence and Giorgio Morandi's in Bologna.
The exhibition title "Between the Dog and the Wolf" is a translation of a common French expression Entre chien et loup," which refers to oncoming twilight. As Meyerowitz notes, "It seemed to me that the French liken the twilight to the notion of the tame and the savage, the known and the unknown, where that special moment of the fading of the light offers us an entrance into the place where our senses might fail us slightly, making us vulnerable to the vagaries of our imagination."
""Morandi, Cézanne and Me"" reflects Meyerowitz's fascination with
everyday objects, which also served as inspiration to Paul Cézanne and Giorgio Morandi. He was granted permission to photograph in both artists' studios in 2013 and 2015.
