Talley Dunn Gallery is pleased to announce Daydreaming, an online exhibition of contemporary photography that explores themes of artifice and materialism through imagery that is at once fantastically ethereal and distinctly mundane. The meticulously crafted works of Sharon Core, Ted Kincaid, and Rachel Perry query distinctions between truth and fiction, photography and other media, the original and the facsimile. Daydreaming invites us into a world of dreams that continues to resonate into our waking hours.

Sharon Core (b. 1965, New Orleans, LA) received her BFA in painting from the University of Georgia in 1987, and her MFA in photography from Yale University School of Art in 1998. Core’s works that recreate canonical scenes in art history astutely interrogate authenticity, authorship, and photographic truth. Institutions that have exhibited her work include Grand Palais, Paris; Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena; Gallery Hyundai, Seoul; White Columns, New York; and the Hermes Foundation Gallery, New York. Her work is included in major public collections such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Guggenheim Museum, New York and Bilbao; the Zabludowicz Collection, London; Yale University Art Gallery; Princeton University Museum of Art; the Lannan Foundation, Santa Fe; Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth; and the West Collection, Philadelphia.
Ted Kincaid (b. 1966, Chattanooga, TN) received his BFA from Texas Tech University and his MFA from the University of Kentucky. His art investigates the play between painting and photography, creating a new definition of painting informed by photo-imagery and a new photography influenced by painting. Institutions that have exhibited his work include the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens; the International Print Center of New York; the Savannah College of Art and Design; the San Antonio Museum of Art; and the Loyola University Art Gallery, New Orleans. Kincaid’s work is in the permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston; the San Antonio Museum of Art; the U.S. State Department; and the Human Rights Campaign Headquarters, Washington, D.C. among others.
Rachel Perry (b. 1962, Tokyo, Japan) has received four fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, has been to Yaddo and ArtOmi, and was Artist-in-Residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in October of 2014, beginning an affiliation that continues today. Perry’s photographs in this exhibition are from the series Lost in my Life (2009-2012) in which the artist transforms unremarkable relics of quotidian life into whimsically captivating forms that caress and engulf her body. Perry’s work is held in public collections including the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Baltimore Museum; and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Archives, Boston. She has had solo exhibitions at institutions such as the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum; the Drawing Center, New York; and the Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany.
