JED WILLIAMS GALLERY is excited to present its new exhibit, a solo showcase of photographer Mark Fields.This exhibit arrives on the heels JWG’s showing of collage artist and photographer Donnas Schaeffer, whose exuberant use of collage and bright color is followed by the elegant and stirring black and white photographs of Mark Fields, a major and acclaimed photographic talent. Mark Fields creates a symphony of black, white, grey and all the nuances in between. His images have a romantic, slightly surreal feel, transforming and recombining various elements such as flowers, landscapes and musical instruments.
