Please join us Friday, September 15 from 5-7 p.m. for the artist reception of Two Generations: Paul Caponigro and John Paul Caponigro, a father-and-son exhibition including over two dozen photographs highlighting the careers of this family of artists. John Paul will give an informal chat at 4 p.m. before the reception begins.
For both artists, Santa Fe was home for over twenty years (1970 – 1990s) while Paul lived here raising John Paul in a community of artists. Now, decades later, their work will be shown together in this joint exhibition at Obscura Gallery. Responding to interest in seeing the work of father and son together, the show “Two Generations” was originally assembled from the personal collection of John Paul and first exhibited more than three decades ago – it has traveled and evolved ever since and we are thrilled to have curated our own version at Obscura Gallery.
While at first glance both artists seem a world apart — Paul’s work in black and white gelatin silver and John Paul’s work in vivid color by use of digital means — their work is unified by the same spiritual thread that runs through their landscape photography. They both revere the land they photograph and try to convey their responses to the land they love. They are both successful photographic interpreters of the majesty that our Earth offers us.
