PROVIDENCE R.I. On Thursday, September 20th, 2012 join us for the opening reception for our newest exhibition, "Paradise Paths: Lost in the Stars," from 5:00 - 9:00 PM.

Gallery Z Director Berge Ara Zobian is proud to present an exhibit by his close friend, mentor, and esteemed photographer, Larry Sykes, in the second solo exhibit in a decade at the gallery. In "Paradise Paths: Lost in the Stars," Sykes brings with him a new dimension of photography. His photo-constructions showcase beautiful architecture, everyday scenes, and even major historical events. Delve in to multilayered, three dimensional photo constructions that tell stories of life, culture, and society.

Larry Sykes (b.1931) earned his masters at the Pratt Institute in New York, after receiving his undergraduate degree from Morgan. He served as Director of the Carl J. Murphy Fine Arts Center at Morgan and later taught at the New York University, the College of Art in Kumasi, Ghana and the Parsons School of Design West Africa Program. Later, Sykes served as commissioner for the Rhode Island Council of the Arts. His works have appeared in numerous books, journals, and museums worldwide, including commissions done for the Smithsonian National Zoological Park. For more than fifty years, Sykes has surveyed the world's societies through his camera's lens. He states: "Material culture is a reflection of identity that mirrors a character that is congealed, accentuated, or masked. The photographer looks beyond the mask. He re-envisions and constructs alternative social possibilities that meditate contradictions in material forms and social cultures. In return, the viewer is compelled to confront the layered meanings that objects assume, as they are seen through a single lens with multiple dimensions." For Sykes, the main goal is storytelling. Every cultural artifact has an inseparable identity that ties itself to society, but there is no direct route from the material object to the social history. As such, it is up to the storyteller, Sykes, to connect history to memory, and capture those memories through photography.

The opening reception will be on Thursday, September 20th from 5 - 9 PM. The exhibit runs from September 6th through October 6th.
