DAILY PIC: Glen Baldridge’s “This Way” is on view in his solo show at Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery on New York’s Lower East Side. He shot the source image using a camera set up in the forest, with a motion detector designed to trigger the shutter when anything passed by. Instead of bagging big game, however, Baldridge’s camera went off at the merest fall of a leaf or shift of a branch, capturing the quotidian emptiness of the natural world. Baldridge then printed his banal shots onto large sheets of handmade paper, using a complicated process of resists and powdered graphite. It’s as though his lush artistic media are being asked to restore the romantic essence that is never really there in nature – or only gets there with some human help .
