Pictura Gallery

John Chervinsky Studio Physics + An Experiment in Perspective

Opening Reception Friday November 7, 5 pm – 8 pm

Show Runs November 7 – December 27th

John Chervinsky is a photographer and Harvard engineer in applied physics. His images create a world where the two subjects playfully intermingle. Chervinsky says, “I am fascinated by the concept of time. I can measure it, account for it in an experiment in the lab, and live my life in it, but I still don’t know what it is, exactly.” His photographs mix elements of optics and perspective as a means to explore human knowledge and perception.


Royale Hair Salon

Our next artist is Penina Gal, and we’ve attached a few images you can use for promotion:
