Dartmouth Medical Center Exhibition: Genome-inspired paintings

While many people regard science as purely objective and art as purely subjective, Daniel Kohn’s paintings — including “Data Sets,” a series currently installed in the public spaces at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center — blur the lines between these seemingly disparate disciplines.

February art exhibit at the Winchester Library: ‘A Different Light’

For this exhibit the artist has selected images employing techniques such as infrared, high dynamic range (HDR), and tone-mapped photography to expose the beauty and mystery of every day scenes and objects brought out by the edges, the drama, and the varieties of light. In his artist’s statement, Hesse says, “Professionally I have been a scientist and teacher, but I’ve always had a passion for photography and have been making photographs for more than 40 years. I am rarely without a camera and my first love is capturing the mystery and beauty of the ordinary, the invisible, the overlooked. Although the camera is unexcelled at capturing a moment, rendering reality, or producing a document, for me the camera is a kind of Kokopelli, isolating, merging, distorting and thus transforming the ordinary into unexpected visions. I hope that I shall always be startled by the ability of this trickster to confuse the eye and puzzle the mind.
