ABOUT THE WORK “Three young men from Ohio wanted to express their ‘togetherness’ and the photograph Tangle is from this series.”
"Everyone is an absolute miracle of being, giving form to moments of great beauty is what photography does best. A brief 'snap shot' from hours of shooting puts a tiny fraction of time on film and only then does it have the potential of becoming art." (Dahlquist, 1991)
ABOUT THE ARTIST Paul Dahlquist (1929-2019) trained as a painter at the University of Oregon and the University of Washington in the 1940's, and was friends with artists, Guy Anderson, Morris Graves and Mark Toby. For many years he used a camera as a sort of technological sketchbook out in the field. By 1980, he had accepted the camera as his major form of expression.
Although there is a certain tone that serves to unify Paul’s work and concern for the relationships of shape and form, there is not necessarily a predominate subject matter within his work. A number of his images are potently erotic, while in others, the human form becomes a means to an abstraction.
Dahlquist was exhibited extensively throughout his career and his work is in the collection of the Portland Art Museum and Henry Ransom Humanities Research Institute University of Texas at Austin.
Printed with archival inks on high quality archival hot press rag paper with a matte finish.
