FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Liz Cockrum's "Sirens" Showing at the Eric Phleger Gallery
Artists' Reception is Saturday, June 27, 2009 from 6-8pm

The Eric Phleger Gallery is proud to announce a new show of photographs opening Saturday June 27 and continuing through Saturday July 25, 2009. Jacques Garnier will be showing a body of work entitled “Passages” and Liz Cockrum will be showing her new work entitled “Sirens”. The artists’ reception is Saturday June 27, 2009 from 6 until 8pm.

“Sirens”, Liz Cockrum’s series of photographs celebrate women in modern society who surf.

Through portraits, landscapes and details she explores a little-seen side of surfing and attempts to focus the viewer’s attention on the individuals who are an integral part of this unique culture. Born and raised in Chicago, Il. Cockrum earned her BFA in photography from Columbia College in 2006. She recently moved to San Diego bringing with her a sound technical expertise as well a fresh perspective on surfing.

Painterly, sparse and often formal, Jacques Garnier’s transcendent photography documents the passage of time. With intuitive framing, the images from “Passages” convey a sense of history and space left to its own demise. Fragile yet bold, these intimate details of interior landscapes reflect an era where the past is pushed into the background, where shadows and memory replace a presence that is no longer here. What is left is a world of “becoming” that has not yet found its way into the future.

The Eric Phleger Gallery is located in downtown Leucadia at 828 North Coast Hwy 101. The gallery is open Saturday’s from 12 until 5 pm and by appointment. To schedule an appointment or to contact the gallery please call 760-436-1440.
