Gregory Brindley Photography was my first exhibition at The Art Hall, in the summer of 2016. While there was other work by Oklahoma artists already on the walls in The Art Hall, we hosted a spotlight exhibition on Gregory's work. This exhibition presented recent landscape, street, and travel photography by Oklahoma City artist Gregory Brindley. Three distinct bodies of work were sampled and exhibited: the West, Antelope, and Turkey series. West is composed of photographs taken in state and national parks in the Western United States, including Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, and Zion National Park, among others. Antelope features images from Antelope Canyon, a naturally formed slot canyon located on Navajo land in Arizona. Turkey reflects on Gregory’s travels through the country of Turkey and includes portraits, landscapes, and interior scenes. While these series were not originally intended to be grouped together, the selections from these series work with and complement each other, both stylistically and aesthetically, and when considered collectively, they function as a study on engagement, immediacy, and the effects of the passage of time on both people and nature. Gregory and I have known each other for more than 20 years and were excited to collaborate on this project. We have continued working together to develop bodies of photographic work since this show.
