Mackworth Island Transformed: Rocks Reimagined

Portland, ME – Tim Greenway debuts the photography exhibit “Mackworth Island Transformed: Rocks Reimagined” in the Portland City Hall Rotunda from July 3 – August 31, 2018.

“Mackworth Island Transformed: Rocks Reimagined” explores the transformation of space within the context of both the physical and the psychological. Using the popular location of the rock formations near the breakwater on Mackworth Island in Falmouth as subject matter, Greenway’s photographs visualize imaginative landscapes by detailing the island’s geology. By focusing on the micro-ecology of the island, and by transforming the familiar and dramatic coastline into an abstraction of color, texture, pattern, and form, Greenway’s photographs reimagine a recognizable setting. The photographs thus transform the overarching space into detailed and abstracted images that reflect personal exploration as an escape from literal reality.

Greenway is an editorial/commercial photographer and an adjunct professor at the University of New England where he teaches Digital Photography within the Department of Art.

An opening reception will be held July 6 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. Refreshments for the reception will be provided by Two Fat Cats Bakery and Black Dinah Chocolatiers.
