Gallery Release:
“Gunter Heinrich, President of Winchester Galleries, is pleased to introduce the work of photographer and environmental artist David Ellingsen: ‘In our quest to always exhibit work by artists who have something interesting and relevant to say, we welcome David’s dynamic and thought-provoking photography.’

This introductory exhibition includes work from three different series by the artist. Future Imperfect explores the elements of man and the environment and the instinct of self-preservation in a Western culture that upholds its standards of living at all costs. The Last Stand addresses the state of our forests and the cognitive dissonance arising from the dilemma of participation in, and yet responsibility for, the fouling of one’s own nest. The site-specific installations in Obsolete Delete were informed by the increasing speed of technological obsolescence, the environment and the collision of the two.”
