Sherry Little Fawn Schuessler’s Firecracker Portal 2- part of a Diptych- on Metal is a panoply of energy, enchantment, and light. What brought me into art was experimental film (moving image, not still photography). The freedom and immense, overpowering beauty liberating the photographic medium from its traditional figurative subject matter is hard to comprehend. A camera can be utilized as much as a paintbrush to capture and describe the most abstract of forms. Firecracker Portal 2- part of a Diptych- on Metal is an ideal example of this photographic freedom. Often abstract photography is less understood and accepted than its painterly counterparts (although even this dichotomy is subverted by filmmakers like Carolee Schneemann and Stan Brakhage, who paint directly on film and often eschew the camera altogether) since photography is so widely understood as a figurative medium. Nothing excites me more than artists who push the boundaries of their chosen medium, and, without doubt, Schuessler has triumphantly done so.
