Tom Gilligan has a new photography exhibit at the Professional Centre. Over forty eclectic images, ranging from abstract to realistic, symbolizing and communicating aspects of the artist’s subjectivity.
I believe that art is symbolic in the sense that the artist creates a tangible representation of her/his inner emotional awareness; A purely subjective and personal awareness that is the origin and bedrock of all art whatever form it may take.
My photographs, whether one calls them realistic or abstract, all contain personal meaning and evoke for me an emotional subjective awareness of creative moments when I was moved by something I had seen in the world or become aware of during the editing of the original photographic image.
Each image selected for this gallery show, whether abstract or realistic in form, is an expression of my own inner awareness. To the degree that they evoke a personal emotional response from you then they serve to connect us at a deeper level than the merely symbolic and I believe that is the great value of all art, including art of the camera.
