Clint Woodside | Build us a Path

Space 1026 presents "Build us a Path" a solo exhibition by Clint Woodside. Opening reception is May 1st from 7-9pm and will be on view until May 29th, 2015.

“Build Us A Path” weaves Woodside’s documentarian style of photography with archival photographs, creating a landscape that is powerfully familiar yet vague and distant. The images of his travels - shot on film and printed in the darkroom - are laden with personal perspective that are immediately relatable, evoking feelings that tie into our own life experiences, thus allowing observers to create their own unique, subjective narrative.

Influenced by his own upbringing in the rust belt of Buffalo, New York, Woodside provides an intimate visual story of human nature and its juxtaposition with time; what begins with the desire for a lasting image of a single moment, ultimately becomes a collection that emphasizes the illusion of permanence in our fast-pace world.

Clint Woodside’s work has been shown in New York City, Los Angeles, San Jose, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. Primarily a photographer, Woodside is also known for his extensive work as a curator and creator of the Deadbeat Club - a publisher, and distributor of small books and publications whose core members' works have been showcased at the MOCA’s Art in The Street, and as part of the Beautiful Losers traveling exhibition and movement. Members include a diverse roster of film photographers including Patrick O’Dell, Ed Templeton, Deanna Templeton, Andrea Sonnenberg, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Jerry Hsu and others.

In commemoration of the show Woodside is releasing a new limited edition catalog by Deadbeat Club. Signed and numbered by the artist, the catalog will be available at Space 1026.
