North Fork-Based Artist’s Latest Solo Show Shows Long Island From Unique Vantage Point

Kristen Catalano

Transformation by Alex Ferrone.

Aerial photographic works from North Fork artist Alex Ferrone will be showcased during The Remsenburg Academy's newest exhibition, Vantage Point, which will be on display from Friday, July 28 until Sunday, August 13.

The solo show encompasses images that were captured across Long Island. "Abstracted from diverse natural scenes, my Aerial Observations works are singular perspectives of everyday panoramas of the waters and land of the region," Ferrone explained. "This unusual perspective presents the area's various colors, textures, forms and shades to the viewer that challenge their perception, while creating a new awareness for the fragile ecological systems that surround us that can be taken for granted."

Ferrone is a self-taught artist that has had photographs published in regional, national and international publications, including Wine Spectator, Vanity Fair Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Pinhole Journal and Newsday. Ferrone has also exhibited in galleries and museums in Italy and locally on Long Island.

"Generally leaving out representational elements within the images of my Aerial Observations series leaves the viewer little or no reference to reality and challenges their perception of the mystery within the natural form, shape and line. 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," Ferrone shared. "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. Presenting this unique perspective for the viewer excites their imagination and interpretation, while at the same time, creates a new awareness and appreciation for the fragile ecological systems that surround us that can be taken for granted."

An opening reception for Vantage Point will be held on Saturday, July 29 from 5 to 7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. The artist will be available for questions and Prosecco and light bites will be served.

Vantage Point can be viewed on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment.

The Remsenburg Academy is located at 130 South Country Road in Remsenburg. For more information call 631-734-8545 or visit www.alexferrone.com.
