This exhibition will feature photographic work from San Jose artist Jacqueline Thurston. A professor at San Jose State University since 1965, Thurstonís photographs capture human experience with such candor that time seems momentarily trapped in an individual moment. Initially trained as painter, Thurstonís images reveal her educational background in their composition and formal structure. Like the Northern Renaissance artists whom she admires, her prints often contain miniature worlds. Her images dissolve the boundary between observer and participant by creating an active visual dialogue between the two. Through her poetic photographs, Thurston encourages viewers to consider the enigmas and paradoxes of life and death.
