Orchard Windows Gallery hosts Duality of Sand, a Solo 

Exhibition by Max Noy

New York, NY – November 17 – Orchard Windows Gallery is pleased to present "Duality of Sand", a solo show by New York-based photographer Max Noy. Images are on view from December 10th to 16th. Artist reception will be held on Monday, December 10th, 7-9pm.

The still life photographs on display in Duality of Sand depict weathered natural wood fencing along a beach at the state of being nearly buried by the sand. In this state, the sand obstructs and obscures the structure’s intended purpose and renders it an abstract object. The characteristics of the weathered wood and wire are enhanced by the proximity to the sand and the geometric compositions of the sand waves complement the planks. The late afternoon light casts long shadows adding another, parallel, dimension. The series focuses on the tension and interplay between these elements exploring found installations of various sizes, complexity, and states of decay.
