Green Chalk is pleased to present VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE, an exhibition by Richard Whittaker whose photographs question the potential for capturing a moment of feeling in the presence of beauty. Real, but elusive moments can sometimes be caught in a visual image. For Whittaker, such moments always include an essential quality of feeling, and remind us all of a kind of nourishment that too often is missing in our lives.

 

Photography has been a constant companion in Whittaker’s wide-ranging explorations for the past 35 years and is one of the keys informing his work as a publisher, editor, writer, lecturer and thinker in the realm of contemporary art. Recently, Whittaker’s photographs have been included in ENTER THE WILD at the diRosa Gatehouse Gallery in Napa, California. His work has also been shown at the Berkeley Art Center, the Oakland Museum, the Triton Museum, Blue Sky Gallery in Portland as well as other galleries throughout the US.

His work has been published in San Francisco Magazine, The Sun and Parabola Magazine. Currently, The Conversations: Interviews with Sixteen Contemporary Artists- a book of his interviews and photographs published by Whale and Star- is available from the University of Nebraska Press.

 

In 1998 Whittaker founded the art journal works & conversations. In support of his work with the magazine, he has received grants from the Kalliopeia Foundation, the Larson Legacy Foundation, the Hobson Family Foundation, the Tipping Point Foundation, California Statewide CDC and RSF Social Finance. He is also the West Coast editor of Parabola Magazine.

 

Whittaker holds an M.A. in Clinical Psychology from JFK University, NY. He spent a year at the Graduate Theological Union In Berkeley, CA, and received his B.A. in philosophy from Pomona College, CA.
