Mary Ellen Bartley is known for her photographs exploring the tactile and formal qualities of the printed book and its potential for abstraction. In her poetic minimalist images, the books’ contents are often hidden or only partially revealed, underscoring the tension between narrative and purely formal concerns.

Bartley has made projects in the private libraries of artists Robert Wilson, Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, as well as Giorgio Morandi.

For this exhibition the multiple meanings of its title Volumes will be explored, in the subject of volumes of books, the quiet volume of color palettes, and the geometric volumes of the compositions. It will also include a photo of Jackson Pollock’s damaged jazz records.
