“Selections From Two Bodies Of Work” By Joe Wolek

How do you see? Maybe the better question is how do you understand what you see? In his two projects, “On the Beaten Track” and “Loose Wanderings in a Rigid Terrain,” photographer Joe Wolek specializes in the ambiguity of the visual world. “I have developed a very specific way of looking,” he said. “Sometimes, when I am completely in the scouting zone, it feels that I only see the visual world in how it can sell crap. In my art, I attempt to turn this upside-down … forming a new interpretation of the contemporary landscape.” The exhibition is part of the Louisville Photo Biennial and includes ceramics by Lena Wolek. Proof of vaccination and wearing a mask required to enter.
