Where the Fairies Are: Photographs by Andy Chen 

Wug Laku's Studio & Garage

Many of Andy Chen's digital photographs on display here come from a two-month trip he took across the country with his wife, who was pregnant at the time. One photo resulting from this trip is "Moss," which is focused on an area of moss growth around a cluster of fumaroles in Yellowstone National Park. The otherworldliness of this setting is what attracted him. "We have become strangers with the notion of enchantment," he writes in his artist's statement. But the setting of this photo is otherworldly enough that you could imagine fairies living there. In "Stone Table," the setting is somewhat less unusual; a forested area of Red River Gorge in Kentucky. Here he came across one rectangular rock, balanced upon another, illuminated by a sunbeam. Chen doesn't wait for such sunbeams to appear, nor does he want to. And like the sunbeam itself, the strong narrative element in this photo - you could imagine Abraham drawing a knife on Isaac in a setting like this - is more or less something that he stumbles upon.
