Turn Gallery presents Ripple Effect, a four-person exhibition in which three artists — Odessa Straub, Ariel Dill, and Christian Sampson — respond to a single photograph by Gosta Peterson. Peterson’s image is that of a woman in a multi-colored floral dress looking into a three-paneled mirror with three bright, vertical deco lamps. The photo, taken in 1973 for Mademoiselle Magazine, seems to carry back to an earlier time — perhaps the turn of the 19th century. This was a moment when interest in women’s issues were starting to take place, just as the 1970s was a decade when feminism came to the fore in both art and society. Straub, Dill, and Sampson, all abstract artists, were asked to respond to the internal life of Peterson’s image, which serves as the touchstone for the works seen in this show. The consequences of their efforts are remarkably nuanced in their appraisal of a photograph that has subtle political implications at a time when many women’s rights may be challenged. Through their various mediums — painting, light projection, and textiles — these three artists portray ideas and imagery without figurative interpretation, inviting the viewer to step inside the mirror of the unknown.
