The Red Poppy Art House is pleased to present POP!, our latest exhibit in partnership with Bay Area Photographers Collective (BAPC). “POP!” is a group exhibition of photographs from the members of BAPC that evokes both a startling and invigorating energy. This exhibit is a curated selection of bold and dynamic works from BAPC members who employ diverse photographic methods to express both the emotional and the abstract uncanny.
Like the audible POP! of a balloon expiring, these works have in common a strong emotional resonance that intends to jolt the viewer to question the artifice of our popular culture. Through bold imagery, high color and movement, “POP!” unites these intellectual ideas and further examines the role of artifice as a photographic element by juxtaposing straight photography and constructed images. This show invites the viewer to a celebration of the unsettling and uncertainty that lies beneath the surface of modern, glittering beauty.
