Star/Fruit // OCT 2013
Scott Alario & Harry Gould Harvey IV
Oct. 3rd - Nov. 3rd
Boston, MA. Aviary Gallery was pleased to present Star/Fruit, a two person collaborative exhibition of new photographic work by Harry Gould Harvey IV and Scott Alario.
Recently married, Harvey self-published the book Canadian Fruit, a collection of portraits and still lives surrounding his honeymoon. The exhibition pairs work from Harvey's book with Alario's images of his own wife, Marguerite, made over the course of their ten years thus far. Interspersed, and framed similarly, the lines between the true narratives are blurred. The show sets portraits against strange still lives and other abstractions, to create a visual tension akin to that which exists within
relationships. Having no shortage of images of their better halves, the two used the collaborative show as a way to pay homage, and give thanks to their muses. And although it's an old trope in
photography's history, with countless precedents that both artists would list as inspirational, the
weaving of their two stories arrives at something fresh- and it's as simple, or perhaps as complex,
as love itself.
Scott Alario received an MFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2013, and a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art in 2006. He was named a 2011 emerging photographer by Art New England, and received a 2012 Fellowship Merit Award from the Rhode Island State Council of the Arts. Alario lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island.
