Portraits of an artist emerging into her own
Art: Glenn McNatt
Photographer Paula Gately Tillman captures the city's dreamlike quality and uncanny aura of dwellings frozen in time in her richly evocative series of Venetian landscapes, on view in The Gallery at La Terra in Hampden.
Venice is one of the most photographed cities on Earth, but like the face of a beautiful woman, one never tires of its image. Tillman's pictures reprise many of the city's most famous landmarks - the Piazza San Marco, the Grand Canal, the Rialto, etc. - and her finely graduated, atmospheric digital black-and-white prints perfectly describe the watery mystery that envelops the place like a shroud.
One comes away from this lovely show reassured that beauty, everywhere threatened, still holds a purchase on the world in Venice, a city whose timeless image and very name remain synonymous with romance.Dreams of Venice runs through June 30 at The Gallery at La Terra, 4001 Falls Road.
