Installation day at Bishop Creek

I have twenty-seven platinum palladium prints at Bishop Creek for a solo exhibit. I am a native Oregonian and I travel to some very remote areas in search of unique imagery. My reverence for the Pacific Northwest is apparent in this work. The Bishop Creek Tasting room is an ideal place to display photography. It will be my pleasure to be at the reception on First Friday, November 6...Come celebrate with me..have a glass of wine and take in the scenery.

EXHIBIT TITLE: Platinum Palladium Photography by David Burbach

David Burbach works exclusively in platinum/palladium photography. Burbach creates images that are remarkably subtle and detailed with a tonal range that is unsurpassed. Platinum/palladium was a popular method of making photographic prints at the turn of the 20th century. Platinum/palladium prints have a sensuous texture that is dramatically different from the glossy surface of gelatin silver prints. Today very few photographers chose an old process and those who do are considered “alternative” photographers. All of Burbach’s prints are made start-to-finish by hand in his darkroom.

OVERALL ART EXHIBIT DATES: October 30, 2009- November 30, 2009

RECEPTION: First Friday, November 6, 5-9pm

LOCATION: Bishop Creek Cellars, 614 E First Street, 
Newberg, OR 97132

Solo Exhibit / David Burbach at the Gorge White House

(click to enlarge)

The relationship between yin and yang is often described in terms of sunlight playing over a mountain and in the valley. As the sun moves across the sky, yin and yang gradually trade places with each other, revealing what was obscured and obscuring what was revealed. Dichotomy is the essence of everything in this world. The existence of both delight and sadness will sometimes cause conflicts in our lives. Yet, yin and yang ironically make one's life well balanced. Based on the concept of balancing dichotomy, this exhibition, Yin Yang portrays human life consisting of the harmony that is both happiness and longing.
