Photographer Tucker Hollingsworth: "The act of making becomes an act of surrender"
|Tucker Hollingsworth, Noise #34, Full Moon Prairie|
Hollingsworth, who remarkably has no formal studio education, spends his time traveling between residencies and exhibitions. Last year, one of his prints was donated to the Weisman Art Museum's collection. This March, after trekking with him to a wooded photoshoot at night, MN Original will spotlight Hollingsworth's process and recent work.
The artist recently returned from Volterra, Italy, with a new series of photographs that exemplify his ability to instill a single image with a deep sense of time. In a recent chat, he referred to his work as "visualized gestures of seeing like a human: many moments at once. In one simultaneous present, we are many moments."
This week, Minneapolis's Circa Gallery will pair his new work in an exhibition with painter Barbara Kreft, who has also been featured on MN Original.

Consider Noise #34, Lightning, for example. The title and the small white scratch in the bottom left corner of the piece turn the composition from a non-objective pixelation into a massive landscape. This single print communicates the many moments of its own composition. The viewer sees the space between Hollingsworth and the bolt.
