Marsha Kazarinov-Owett: Blowing in the Wind

Flowers become subjects of unexpected intensity in Marsha Kazarinov-Owett’s: Blowing in the Wind, a new photographic exhibition opening December 11 and running through January 22 at Alfstad& Contemporary.

“Marsha focuses her camera on the same content photographers have been shooting for nearly 200 years – flowers,” says Sam Alfstad. “Yet her images are startling new.”

In her first Sarasota showing, the artist displays 29 images captured with long exposures – three single-shot images and six sequential series shot as the flowers blew back and forth in the wind. The resulting streaks of color create a turbulence of emotional uncertainty, a feeling of being flung about on the whims of atmospheric forces.
