Concrete to Data through the Lens of Alexandra Pospelova

I am excited to share a powerful series of Concrete to Data photographs taken by artist Alexandra Pospelova. The selected works give us a peek into the photographers process and how the space can be viewed. We are taken through various complimentary color combinations and compositions. I asked Alexandra for a statement about shooting the exhibition and sharing her vision on the show.
“Unique, Moving, Powerful! Concrete to Data is a unique show because graffiti in its nature is an outdoor art form, while here, in Steinberg Museum of Art, one sees it in a totally different environment. It is moving because it makes the viewer look for hidden meanings by overwhelming, puzzling and, in some way, provocative quality. It is powerful because of its large scale spray-painted pieces that have more authority to a body viewing it in a space, as something one cannot take in with one glance. It was a pleasure to photograph such a large variety of mediums, creative ideas, and interesting stories that allowed me to penetrate deeper into seeing the essence of graffiti itself. The camera served as a great tool to discern that essence that cannot be viewed with a naked eye, but through some consideration.”
