On January 26th, The Silverlake Art Company will present CAVES, a special one-night exhibition of large format color photography by the artist Austin Irving, curated by LA art critic Daniel Rolnik and sponsored by Rutherford Grove Winery.
CAVES is a collection of large format photographs of underground caverns throughout Southeast Asia and the United States. The series focuses on “show caves,” which are natural caves managed by government or commercial organizations and which have been modified to accommodate tourism. The photographs are a unique look at natural environments that have been curated to cater to the physical needs of sightseers, as well as our collective fantasies of what a cave should look like.
Curator Daniel Rolnik, whose pervasive presence on the LA art scene has manifested in an intimate knowledge of some of the best work and artists out there with articles for top publications such as The LA Weekly, Argot & Ochre, Fecal Face, and Beautiful/Decay, says, "Austin's photographs enhance my belief in other dimensions. Her images act like doorways to another side that features fantastic caves, glistening lights, and otherworldly atmospheres."
