“Pseudodocumentation,” Los Angeles-based photographer David DiMichele’s current exhibit at Randall Scott Gallery,  is a playful examination of scale and perception. DiMichele’s subjects find themselves in dramatic surroundings – encircled by towers of melting ice, daunting slashes of bark, shards of glass –  and while intimidating, these are also simultaneously beautiful settings. But these images aren’t achieved in grand halls, museums or cavernous warehouses – no, they’re constructed at the artist’s studio table as detailed dioramas. 

Further, DiMichele’s “Pseudodocumentary”  photos make a statement about how we – the audience – see and experience the monumental art that they pay homage to. Most people don’t always have access to the first-hand experience of the type of  major installations portrayed in DiMichele’s photographs. More often, we see images of such exhibits through reproductions or websites.

DiMichele’s series is on display through October 17th at:

Randall Scott Gallery
111 Front Street #204
Brooklyn, NY 11201
