On Longing: photography and other media by Frank Rapant
September 23 – December 24, 2014
Artist presentation and reception September 25, 4:30 pm
On Longing is a body of work, by local artist and freelance photographer Frank Rapant, pertaining to the grieving process, and how a person might approach this from a faithless standpoint. These images are meant to touch on a commonality of desire between human beings. Things we can all relate to wanting: our lost loves, the ability to come unbound from the Earth, physical beauty or attractiveness, intimacy with another, and some amount of grace or art.
