"Night: Chris Faust and Mike Lynch"
2000-12-15 until 2001-02-11
Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Minneapolis, MN, USA

This exhibition will feature nightscapes by photographer Chris Faust and painter Mike Lynch, artists who for many years have produced work that reveals the essence of the urban landscape. Diligent explorers of the physical worlds, they are both drawn to places that seem to stretch over time–empty dock yards, railroad yards, industrial sites, architectural landmarks, and myriad nighttime haunts.

Chris Faust is well known for panoramic black-and-white photographs of landscape, images often filled with contradiction and the enduring tension between humans and nature. A disciplined and masterful technician, Faust achieves lush tonal quality through a process called compensation development, which he learned from John Sexton, a student of Ansel Adams. Mike Lynch has been recognized for decades as an artist whose oil paintings, watercolors, and drawings display rare economy and sensitivity. He employs practices such as 19th-century British watercolor technique, and has devoted himself to night scenes since 1953, when he began painting in earnest.
