Spirits, Illusions & Discoveries: Photographs by Doug McLarty (Chakeres Gallery)

Sep 14, 2018 – Jan 18, 2019

Doug McLarty’s photos employ eye-catching botanical designs, unusual floral combinations and whimsical creations to help us examine and enjoy the rich diversity of nature. He makes use of digital scanning technology to reveal unique patterns and perspectives for the viewer.

For the past 40 years Doug McLarty has photographed landscape and botanical images throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Florida and the western United States. Much of his extensive portfolio was created using traditional black and white film capture and darkroom processing techniques. McLarty gradually moved into digital photography and now makes digital images exclusively. Doug credits British sculptor, environmentalist and photographer Andy Goldsworthy, glass artist Dale Chihuly and architect Frank Gehry for inspiring his current botanical photo series. Doug McLarty resides in Xenia, Ohio.

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 22, 5:30-7 pm
