Connie Sullivan: Ripples Through Time
Connie Sullivan uses series to develop an idea or theme more fully. In her new series, Ripples Through Time, she continues to expand upon her reputation for innovative photography. Beginning with the primary theme of illumination, she utilizes light and color to re-create the evolution of the universe with its multiplicity of forms. She fabricates the images in her studio, constructing scenarios to be photographed from different angles for 3-D effect. This is her first series using color as an essential component of the image. Born out of the imagination, the photographs in this exhibit are abstractions of the transformative energy that flows through the world. For Sullivan, light is seen in its spectrum of colors and has made it possible for humanity to exist and to witness the beauty of the universe in its many manifestations.
Connie Sullivan has been exhibiting extensively in the United States and abroad since 1980. In 1983, Morgan and Morgan, NY, published a book of her photographs titled Petroglyphs of the Heart. She has received fellowships from the Ohio Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. Examples of her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; the Cincinnati Art Museum; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson; and in numerous private collections.
