With her large-scale, selenium-toned silver gelatin prints (60 x 42.5 inches) on Classic Charcoal paper, and without digital or other alteration, Silas Shabelewska pursues her interest in applying 19th-century feeling and technology to a contemporary approach. ROADS represents her most accomplished work to date. The exhibition, focusing on America, represents the first part of a longer body of work on roads around the world.
As if to discover America for herself, Shabelewska has found in its roadways a metaphor for what most of us believe this country still to be - an open, relatively unspoiled canvas which all are free to personally traverse and, like some nomadic Jackson Pollock, make their mark(s). Shabelewska finds her subject matter in places where most of us don't even bother to look, much less see for their poetic potential. - Robert G. Edelman, independent writer and curator in New York; from the exhibition catalogue
