“La plage blanche de Carine Magescas”

  • 13th May 2015

In her work, Carine Magescas suggests more than she imposes on: shadows, silhouettes; the contour of a woman appearing in a flag twisted by the wind. The rest is left to imagination, thanks to wide stretches of negative space in the images. “I work a lot with overexposure” says Magescas, “I like very serene, minimal compositions. It gives you space to dream.” she explains.

Solo Exhibition: NYC Opening Night “The Surge”

  • 7th May 2015

“The Surge” will run from May 7 to June 13, 2015 with an artist reception on Thursday, May 7th from 6-8pm.

Carine Magescas is a French photographer who moved to the US in 1998. After 15 years in California, she now lives and works in New York.

“The Surge” portraits some of most iconic surf beaches in America – from the coast of Northern California to Montauk, the far East of the Hamptons, known as “The End” – always off-season.

Magescas’ vision is endowed with a placeless, timeless sensibility. Through delicate overexposure and a minimalist approach, Magescas’ captures a luminous haven of subdued serenity, allowing the viewer to be absorbed in dreamy seascapes. The surfers are slivers of elegant darkness, dissolving in the sleekness of the water. Off-season means quiet, but by no means static – the vast expanses of the beaches in the images, rid of all seasonal furor, brings a minimalist sophistication to each image and elevate them into the realm of fine art.

“Like Saul Leiter, whom I greatly admire, I think there is beauty in the ordinary” says Magescas. “I am particularly drawn to composition that captures a sense of abstraction, with multiple layers. When a second look at a photograph reveals more than what you first thought you saw.”

About the exhibition: “The Surge” exhibition features 17 limited edition works and will run through June 12th, 2015. The artist will be present at the opening reception Thursday, May 7th from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m in the Aperture Building on 547 W. 27th St., New York, NY.
