Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York presents Grey Matter by artist Betsy Kenyon, curated by Melanie Willhide.

How does one quantify or describe the experience of nonrepresentational, nonfigurative photography consisting only of gradient forms and geometric patterns — the kind of abstraction afforded traditionally to painters and sculptors? Grey Matter, Betsy Kenyon’s ongoing exploration of both traditional and invented darkroom techniques engenders the experience of form itself. The work plays with dimension, depth, and perspective, and suggests values of minimalism and psychedelia, free of literal subject matter, narrative, or statement. Kenyon deftly challenges the boundaries of photography, offers a new vision for the medium, and gifts us a greyscale language that is simple as it is profound.
