Nathan Baker "Rupture" to open in September

Chicago based photographic artist, Nathan Baker will open the art season at RSG on September 15th. Baker's large scale photograph series "Rupture" will be exhibited..

This body of work, titled Rupture, Part One aims to portray the situation that arises when things break down; when the routine of life pauses and the door is opened for basic, unmediated humanity to step in and replace the automata of contemporary rigor. 1 Such moments are inflections on how we function on a most basic level, without the societal and psychological influences that we have grown to rely upon. Separated into two distinct groups, the photographs provide a shift for the viewer between directly experiencing this moment and a voyeuristic perspective that allows the viewer the spectacle of watching another in the thrall of this experience.
