  • C.R. Ettinger Studio 2215 South Street Philadelphia, PA, 19146 United States (map)

September 5th to October 18th, 2017
The reception will be Saturday September 9th, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00

C.R. Ettinger Studio is pleased to present THERE AND SOMEWHERE, an exhibition of prints and print based work by Bonnie Levinthal.

Bonnie Levinthal’s work is inspired by her travel to isolated northern locations and greatly informed by aerial photography, satellite images and maps. 

While her work is linked to the places she visits it is not characterized by depicting any one particular place, but rather by “re-presenting” images that reflect her emotions and life situations. The visual language she has created melds observation and memory reflecting an experience that exists somewhere between the real and the imagined. Reflections, re-presentations, imaginings... 

Working with intaglio techniques, hand-coloring and suminagashi (a Japanese marbleizing technique), Bonnie creates work that is guided by her research in depicting the mysterious underlying structure and relationship of the physical landscape, along with patterns, colors and phenomena associated with humankind’s impact on the earths ecology. Her work establishes a “viewpoint” whereby she challenges us to further consider ways one’s perspective might offer unexpected reflection and insight.
