Metro Artworks

Stephen Galloway, Coming and Going

Coming and Going

Artist(s):

Project Description Coming and Going symbolizes contemporary society’s relationship with nature, which has become that which exists between human-made elements; columns, buildings, roads, and cities. How do we recognize the disjunction in the artist’s image? How do we reassemble them as we see it? Artist Statement “I wanted to juxtapose high resolution photographed imagery of nature with the long traversed underground corridor. The work comes out of my on-going focus of nature and contemporary urban society” About the Artist STEPHEN GALLOWAY has exhibited his photography extensively throughout the west coast and has been published in Artweek, San Francisco Chronicle and the San Jose Mercury News. Galloway received a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Fine Arts in Photography from San Francisco State University. Display year: 2009 – 2010 Locations: No longer on display
