North Fork-Based Fine Art Photographer Debuts New "Aerial Observations" Of Long Island

Julia Braat

"Cresting" by Alex Ferrone.

Premiering on Sunday, October 30th, a new two-person art exhibit curated by Dawn Lee was unveiled at the Omni Gallery inside RXR Realty's Omni building in Uniondale, NY. This special exhibit is titled Perception and Transformation and features a unique take on aerial photography by Alex Ferrone, owner of the Alex Ferrone Gallery in Cutchogue. Photos will include work she has produced over the past several years that encompass this region. Part of the proceeds will go to Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program, a program that aims to protect Long Island waters and provide clean environments for aquatic animals and plants. Artist John Day's Glacial Son and Wilderness series, comprised of oil and acrylic paintings, will also be exhibited.

This exhibit will truly be a special and eye-opening event produced by the hard-working Ferrone. "My Aerial Observations works are singular studies of bodies of water and land of Long Island. Through aerial photography, I have been able to abstract from diverse natural scenes, various colors, textures, and shades of our waters and landscapes, creating painterly images that shed amazingly unusual perspectives of our everyday panoramas," noted Ferrone. "Presenting this unique perspective for the viewer creates a new awareness and appreciation for the fragile ecological systems that surround us that can be taken for granted."

Ferrone, a self-taught artist, is a critically acclaimed photographer whose work has appeared in solo exhibitions, not only on Long Island, but also in Italy. Art critic Charles A. Riley II, PhD, wrote about Ferrone's work saying she has the impeccable ability to, "mobilize our perspective and permit us to rise, hover, turn, and pull back with her from the shimmering waves in which we are more accustomed to swim and the tide lines we trace on our walks. Known from ground level, these places are made strange, even wondrous and more loved, when framed from above by her alert eye." Her work has been published in internationally renowned publications, including Vanity Fair and The Wall Street Journal.

"Generally leaving out representational elements within the images leaves the viewer little or no reference to reality and challenges their perception of the mystery within the natural form, shape and line," added Ferrone about the series. "Furthering their mystique, many of my images are difficult to distinguish the immense areas from images that may have been created close up from a ground standpoint. These images draw the observer in and disconnect them from present technology as they are left in disbelief that the images are natural forms not designed within the realm of digital manipulation."

Perception and Transformation will run from Sunday, October 30th to Saturday, February 11th, 2017.

The Omni Gallery is located at 333 Earle Ovington Boulevard in Uniondale. For more information about Alex Ferrone, visit www.alexferrone.com.
