Meet the artists of Inside and Out, an upcoming exhibition of photographs featuring Ron Cooper and Jaime Belkind-Gerson at the Curtis Center for the Arts April 8 – May 6, 2023.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul. They reveal true emotions, sentiments, and thoughts. The two artists in this exhibit convey the innermost and outermost beauty of humankind. Photographer Ron Cooper has traveled the world in pursuit of images that reflect local cultures and people. His photographs are intended to convey a sense of place, personality, and emotion. While his photographs document the many differences in appearance, dress, culture, and faith, he hopes they also convey the fact that our similarities and “connectedness” as humans far outweigh those superficial differences.
Doctor Jaime Belkind-Gerson creates his work with the images that surround him daily: X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. In his artwork, he combines these images of our internal reality with images of the external world, manipulating them with specifically designed software algorithms.
Although these artists utilize vastly different approaches, both emphasize humankind’s reflections from within. Meet the artists and hear them talk about their process and inspiration.
