Ringling College Galleries Presents Ferenc Beleznay—Recent Photographs
Patricia Thompson Gallery, January 22 through April 1, 2016
Sarasota, FL – The Ringling College Patricia Thompson Gallery is pleased to present Ferenc Beleznay—Recent Photographs, an exhibition of untitled photographs created over the last year by the recent Ringling graduate. Throughout the exhibition, Beleznay showcases his facility with lighting, focus and composition.
According to Curator Mark Ormond, “His approach can be surreal, as in his black and white portrait of the man with three ghost images fused onto surrounding surfaces. In some works, such as the Lister sign, the artist demonstrates his ability to create an environment and mood that are mysterious and pregnant with possibilities. Beleznay has the rare gift of anticipating a moment to capture before it actually occurs.”
Beleznay discovered his love of photography at an early age when his father introduced him to basic darkroom techniques. He attended high school at United World College of the Atlantic and earned his BFA in Photography and Digital Imaging at Ringling College of Art and Design. Beleznay graduated from Ringling College in 2015 and is currently working with Sarasota-based photographer Barbara Banks.
His work has been exhibited in the United Kingdom, Hungary, the United States and Costa Rica.
Ferenc Beleznay—Recent Photographs will be on view through April 1, 2016.
Gallery Hours: Monday–Friday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
