New York City's Newest Art Space Opens With Rauzier 'Hyperphotos' Exhibition

NEW YORK, NY.- A unique exhibition of Hyperphotos by the leading French artist Jean-Francois Rauzier is to open the Goldman Projects Space, New York City's newest dedicated art space. Mounted by Goldman Projects in partnership with the London based art dealer Waterhouse & Dodd, the show will run from 7th to 29th May at the new Goldman Projects Space in Manhattan's The Soho Building at 104, Greene Street.

The exhibition brings together, for the only time this year, 20 Hyperphotos by an acknowledged pioneer of photography, painting and technology. Rauzier's works are groundbreaking; they combine the big picture and close-up to open up new pictorial possibilities in composition and scale. The Hyperphotos, all C-Type photographic prints of extremely high quality in editions of 8, are executed in a format that can be printed as large as 30 feet by 10 feet without degrading the image; though in the show they are a more manageable size, usually 56 x 98 inches.

"The response to Rauzier's work in the US, Europe and the Middle East has been incredible over the last year, and we are very excited to be teaming up with Goldman Projects to give New Yorkers the opportunity to see a collection of these great works in one unique show," said Ray Waterhouse, Director of Waterhouse & Dodd.

The Goldman Projects Space, in Soho, is the brainchild of community preservation developer Tony Goldman. It will offer New Yorkers a major new space to see contemporary art in a setting designed to be imaginative and accessible, including the opportunity to sit down in adjoining space and enjoy some refreshment.

"This is an exciting development and I am delighted that the new space is to showcase the work of Jean-Francois Rauzier; I am a great admirer of his work and I think New Yorkers will embrace his remarkable talent," said Tony Goldman.

"The project space is a tangible expression of how important art can be in providing a cultural and creative focus for landmark buildings in historic landmark districts here in the city, and for the people who use them," he added.

Each image that Rauzier assembles is a collage of between 600 and 3,500 individual close-up images, each taken one by one, using a telephoto lens over a period of one to two hours. Once the entire scene is captured, Rauzier stitches them together using a variety of computer based programs, including Photoshop, working until the naked eye can't tell where each piece of the image begins or ends.

"When you are looking at a Hyperphoto, at first you think you are looking at an enlargement of a panoramic photograph. Not quite. Look more closely and you absorb a strange atmosphere that distances the viewer from the real world and pulls you into a universe of dizzying amplitude," Rauzier said.

The compositions throughout the show offer a representative selection of Rauzier's work since he became a full-time artist in 2000, alongside some new works created exclusively for the exhibition. Invite-only talks are planned on May 7th, 8th and 10th when the artist will talk about his work, Waterhouse revealed.
