Pictures and films by Jeff Whetstone
February 7th through March 14th
The term “Species Complex” describes the muddled area where the distinction between different species becomes unclear. Jeff Whetstone, who was originally trained as a zoologist, offers new meaning to that term, through a series of deeply toned, floor to ceiling, gelatin silver prints and a stark, video installation, taken from degraded images produced by infrared hunting cameras. Many of the images are startlingly intimate. Through them, Jeff leads us by the hand into a beautiful but unsettling place, where humans and their supposedly lower counterparts in mutual existence, look and behave nearly the same.
