Artist Brings Varied Background to His Art
River's edge Gallery is please to present "LIGHT!" a new photographic series by Myles Gallagher of Grosse Ile.
Myles Gallagher has had featured works in Black & White Magazine and Still Point Arts Quarterly and has had shows in such prestigious galleries as The Scarab club (Detroit), Jules Meighet (San Francisco). Myles has also been an awarding winning photographer in many national and international.
Myles' creative career started in music then went on to dance and now has found "comfort & peace in stillness behind the lens". His performing arts background includes being part of the Blue Lakes International Choir and touring Scandinavia with the choir. His love of Classical Ballet and Modern Dance led him to studying dance at the American Dance Academy, Western Michigan University and with the Nonce Dance Company at Saint Andrews Hall in Detroit.
When asked about his influences he gives credit to Fine art photographer Patricia Izzo who has been a good friend of Myles. "She has been a fabulous role model helping me find my rhythm.", stated Myles. Izzo, whose studio is housed in River's Edge Gallery, is a world renowned photographer and well known in the Metro Detroit area as an artist who works tirelessly to help other artists.
Myles goes on to explain his work, "It's all about the light! Light and shadow have been the foundation of photography since the beginning. While illumination is important, darkness is an equally compelling component and together are the elements of a successful photograph." You can see a concentration of this approach in the show "Light".
