Art Exhibit - Navid Mood: In-Visible

All Day
Jamaica Plain

Description

The Jamaica Plain Branch Library, in collaboration with The Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library and Uforge, is thrilled to announce the latest edition of its annual rotating art program for 2024. This year's exhibit proudly features Jamaica Plain resident Navid Mood and his latest collection, In-Visible.

In-Visible explores the interplay between nature and urban life, highlighting Boston landmarks such as the Arnold Arboretum, Franklin Park, the Blue Hills Reservation, and local ponds. Mood uses infrared black and white photography to reveal a spectrum invisible to the human eye, transforming familiar landscapes into dramatic, surreal settings.

Mood’s photographs reflect the evolution of urban parks, designed to offer city dwellers a reprieve from industrial life and exposure to an idealized rural environment. Over time, these parks have adapted to serve the changing needs of the population, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mood states, "The natural world of the parks was an artificial one. Instead, park designers constructed pastoral and picturesque landscapes that reproduce an idealized rural environment."

His work, characterized by dark skies and brilliantly illuminated vegetation, invites viewers to reimagine their environment and themselves. "Defamiliarized, Navid’s surreal nature is meant to be a setting for imagination," Mood reflects.

This collection marks a shift in Mood's focus from the urban to the subconscious, emphasizing the sublime and transforming the objective world into a deeply personal experience.

Navid Mood: In-Visible
is on view from June 27-August 28, 2024, with a public reception to be held on Thursday, June 27, 2024, 5:30-7:30 pm.

The exhibition space is located on the lower level.
