BERNARD C. MEYERS EXHIBITS “URBAN ABSTRACTS” AT CAMERAWORK
GALLERY, MARCH 2 – MARCH 29, 2019

ARTIST TALK, SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 3:30PM-4:30PM; ARTIST RECEPTION
FOLLOWING 4:30PM-5:30PM. EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
FREE PARKING, ADA ACCESSIBLE.

Bernard C. Meyers notes, “I want to rattle the bones of a building, shake common
perceptions of concrete reality. I want the temporal elements shifting between both
the original architecture and my imagination. For me the higher ground of art has
always been occupied by the unexplainable, the abstract.

“I see architecture as possibilities, as material to mold and shape. My intent is to
uncover uncommon collisions of color and form, to exemplify texture and the
rearrangement of line. I am building and deconstructing simultaneously. I want the
original geometric intentions of the structure to find new life. I want these elements to
discover a new context, a world off kilter, where conventional space is fraught; as if
caught between like ends of magnets.

“Committed to lens-based capture I ask myself this question, “What is visually
possible with new cutting-edge technologies, software and how can I apply it to my
work?” Within that question this project was born. From a background as an
architectural view camera photographer I have found a visual language between the
structural impossibilities of M.C. Escher and the complex color spaces of Richard
Diebencorn. The world of abstract expressionism has new chapter being written with
the tools and techniques of the twenty-first century.

“I am celebrating the latent beauty possible with the building blocks of 2D design,
color and the technology available in 2019. The distinctions between painting,
printmaking and photography for me have become irrelevant as all disciplines merge
in these images. I love the work, it both intrigues and surprises me. The reward lies
in creating what I have never seen before. Throughout my career as an artist my
guiding premise, from Minor White, has always been, photograph something not for
what it is but for what it can become.”

Human Flow, the staggeringly gargantuan look at the global refugee crisis from Chinese director and activist Ai Weiwei, takes a subject that could consume a documentarian’s entire career and seemingly attempts to get it all in one go. While the constant stream of jaw-dropping imagery can sometimes feel like a case of Too Much Information, the sheer macro power of the visuals packs a wallop. Shot in more than 20 countries, and utilizing more than 200 crew members, Ai’s mammoth passion project travels between overpopulated crisis points around the world, pausing only briefly for interviews with refugees and aid workers. The Google Earth-style views of huge masses of people on the move never stop being absolutely dumbfounding.

The Rose and the Chrysanthemum: Japanese Influence on NW Architecture: By 1910, Japanese influence on Portland architecture had begun to take hold.

Japanese influence was perhaps even stronger during the mid-20th Century and it continues to this day in our local architecture. $20.00 - General Public, $12.00 - AHC Members (register online). 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., Architectural Heritage Center - 701 SE Grand Avenue.

Never Give Up! Minoru Yasui and the Fight for Justice tells the story of Minoru (Min) Yasui. The son of Japanese immigrant parents, Yasui was born in 1916 and raised in the farming community of Hood River, Oregon. He was the first Japanese American attorney in Oregon, and during World War II, he initiated the first legal test challenging the forced removal from the West Coast and subsequent incarceration of over 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry in U.S. concentration camps. The film documents his and his family’s experiences during the war and his nine months in solitary confinement awaiting his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court as well as his postwar life and work.

Featuring a discussion with Holly Yasui and Peggy Nagae Doors open at 6:30pm so guests can view our new Experience Oregon exhibit, where Minoru Yasui is featured, in advance of the screening
