While something of an oxymoron, this is also the name of Colin Winterbottom’s newest photography exhibition now on display here at Vastu. And nothing could be more beautiful and elegant than these photographs of corrosion and decay.
“Having developed a reputation for haunting and evocative black and white photographs of the urban landscape, Colin Winterbottom has turned his camera to a study of rust and industrial decay. ”Elegant Corrosion” is an abstract series of vibrant, saturated macro photography which exudes energy and texture. The exhibition features a mix of high-gloss prints on aluminum and framed prints on paper.”
Visually organic with an industrial feel, Colin’s pieces from “Elegant Corrosion” would be an excellent addition to any art lover’s collection.
To celebrate this new collection, Vastu will be hosting an opening reception on December 1st, from 6 to 8PM. So come by to enjoy Colin’s work, have some snacks and mingle with your neighbors.
