The Independent is pleased to present photographs by Brad Carlile as our inaugural exhibition. Carlile was one of the winners of the 2009 Hearst 8×10 Photography Biennial, an international competition for emerging photographers. The Hearst Biennial judges Peter Lindbergh, Mary Ellen Mark, Steve McCurry, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, & John A. Bennette, III. chose 8 photographers from over 1,000 entries. Works from Carlile’s Tempus Incognitus series will be on view from July 7th through August 7th.

Empty hotel rooms from all over the world form the basis of these works, all shot in multiple exposures over time in slide film, with no post-exposure or digital manipulation. The rooms are electric with acidic color, yet spare and detached by virtue of their transient energy and occupation. The perimeters of shifted space and time are blurred, giving a result both classic and contemporary.

BRAD CARLILE This month, two local artists wrestle with divergent but equally mythic conceptions of the great American road. In Tempus Incognitus, photographer Brad Carlile’s striking exhibition at Eva Lake’s new popup, the Independent, the artist conjures a psychedelic nightmare of corporate hotels across the country. Carlile takes photos inside hotel rooms using slide film in multiple exposures that last from a scant 1/500 of a second to a languid 96 seconds. He keeps his camera on a tripod and exposes film throughout the day, which yields fantastical effects, superimposing wildly varying lighting conditions onto the same frame. As the hues overlap, they produce acidic lime greens and chartreuses, fuchsias and ruby reds in wholly unnatural combinations as light emanates from lamps and television screens and bounces off mirrors and windows. Except for the occasional rumpled sheet, there is no trace of human life in any of the prints, lending a dissonance between compositional starkness and chromatic oversaturation.

The hotels themselves are neither skanky nor swanky; they are the kind of middlebrow pabulum palaces that corporate drones deposit themselves in night after night. They are not going to win any awards for design or decor, but they are conveniently located near the airport and the convention center. Carlile is able to intuit and convey the vulgar neon desperation underneath the banal veneer of contemporary business travel. Where are you, America, and who are you—the Marriott or the Mustang Ranch? The only difference, Carlile suggests, is in the length of your exposure.

There is something eerie and otherworldly in Brad Carlile’s immaculate photographs. The prints in Tempus Incognitus show hotel rooms around the world photographed on slide film. Long exposures impart a richly saturated, thoroughly unnatural, and perversely arousing panoply of hues.

Five years ago TJ Norris started a exhibition tradition in Portland. This exhibit brings Portland artists together with the purpose of literally sharing their work with one another.  Last year I was invited to be part of this show.  This year both Andrea and myself are part of this show. I will be sharing/showing the image “Border” from my Tempus Incognitus series.

This year’s show is being held at the Littman Gallery at PSU, Smith Center.

All of the congrats and thanks for putting this show together go to fellow artists Becca Bernstein, Tamara English and Sally Finch for organizing this year’s special event.

Several weeks ago, my wife and I had a delightful lunch with John A. Bennette, collector extraordinaire, in New York.

When talking about my new work “Tempus Incognitus,” John described it as “Technicolor Noir.”  I love that description and asked him if I could use it when talking about my work.  He graciously agreed.

John is currently curating a show about the South. If you are in the Atlanta area you should see this show. http://slowexposures.blogspot.com/2010/05/southern-memory-part-i-inside-and-out.html.

John is busy working on the 2nd edition of the Hearst Biennial.  He also teaches a course in collecting at the New School in New York City.

One of the joys of going to Houston is seeing Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

James Turrell - The Light Inside 1999 Houston Museum of Fine Arts

I, of course, was particularly drawn to “The Light Inside,” which is a site-specific installation of neon lights, gypsum board, plaster, and glass by James Turrell (1999) it is located in the tunnel between the two main buildings of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

If in Houston, I also recommend seeing the show ” Light of the Sufis: The Mystical Arts of Islam” – fantastic show.

In addition this is the last week of “Alice Neel: Painted Truths”.
