Opening January 23rd at the Temple Gallery is Lisa M. Robinson: Photographs, featuring a selection of photographs from the series Snowbound. The show runs through February 23, 2010.  The series made over the course of five years, features snowy winter vistas punctuated by man-made interventions into the landscape such as the brightly colored hammock in Daydream or the fence behind home plate in Harmony. Also published as a beautiful photography book, Snowbound was voted one of the best art books of 2007.
As the Snowbound images have evolved, they have become increasingly connected to the poetics of memory.  Robinson acknowledges that the Snowbound images are imbued with the ideas of 19th century French novelist Marcel Proust, who in his novel In Search of Lost Time, supposed that even the most mundane experience lived in the present could transport you to a distant moment in the past. For Proust the trigger was the experience of dunking a madeleine in his tea. In Robinson’s landscapes parks, backyards and public beaches transformed by snow and ice nevertheless make us reminisce about careless summer days, hot dogs with yellow mustard and dreamy naps under the sun. The Snowbound photographs are as much about the still beauty of winter as the trace of a human presence.

Lisa M. Robinson: Photographs runs from January 23rd to February 23rd at the Temple Gallery. Robinson will be available to sign copies of Snowbound at an artist reception hosted by the gallery Friday, January 29, 2010, 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. The Temple Gallery is located at the historic Temple of Music and Art in SoCo (the newly designated district South of Congress) at 330 S. Scott Ave. in downtown Tucson.
