Hyper-Photomontage by Aaron C. Packard will be on display in the Johnson Fine Arts Center Gallery December 6-February 4, 2022. Packard is an experienced commercial and editorial photographer, working in Southeast South Dakota since 2002. He has previously worked in San Francisco as a photographer’s assistant, producer, and photographer.
Hyper-Photomontage features vibrant and abstract, almost kaleidoscope-like photographs that encourage the viewer to linger in observation. Tied within the collaged imagery are emotions and memories, reflecting how Packard frames different moments throughout his life. Packard writes, “This body of work attempts to represent the transition of memory, from thought to thought, and investigates an abstraction of the image by deconstruction through addition: the hyper-photomontage.”
The closing reception is Friday, February 4, 2022, from 7:00-8:30pm. The closing reception is free and open to the public. For more information about Aaron C. Packard and his artistic practice, visit aaronpackard.com.
