“Photographer Paul Cary Goldberg and artist Jon Sarkin have teamed up again in a temporary exhibition of their fish-themed collection at the new Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute.
The artistic duo have collaborated often over the past year to produce large-scale works. Seven of the pieces they created are variations of a mackerel. There is an opening artist reception for this collection on Thursday, Jan. 10, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the institute, located on the working waterfront at 417 Main St., Gloucester.
“We’ve developed the singular ability to add to each other’s work and at the same time honor each other’s disciplines,” Goldberg said. “This collaboration enables us to manifest our emotional experience, and to create a more elegant and more satisfying and comprehensive way of portraying reality than we can in our separate disciplines.”
The works range in size from 48 inches by 48 inches to 64 inches by 192 inches.
“The space, the location, the mission of the organization and the artwork have a tremendous synergy,” Goldberg said.
