Chemical Imbalance

Chinatown Boardroom Announces Chemical Imbalance - August 5th - 26th, 2011

Chinatown Boardroom is pleased to present Chemical Imbalance, a solo exhibition featuring alternative processed surf photography by Elizabeth Pepin Silva. Opening reception will be held on First Friday, August 5th, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., 2011. This show will run for the month of August. Silva prefers the magic of film and in the past few years has been
exploring alternative process photography. She utilizes a variety of film stock, cheap cameras, and developing and printing techniques, including using garbage found on Oahu’s beaches instead of photographic paper to produce unique photographic sculptural pieces.

Over the years Silva’s photographs have appeared in numerous museums, galleries, newspapers and magazines around the world, and in five books on women's surfing including: Surfing: The New World Order (Duke University Press 2010) and Surfing: Women of the Waves (Gibbs Smith Publishers 2008). Silva states “I am constantly fascinated by water and the people who are attracted to it; the ever changing light and mood of the water, and the unique connection people have to the ocean.”

A separate meet the artist event will take place on Friday August 19th, 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. This will be an opportunity to meet Silva and discuss photography.

Silva is also a documentary filmmaker and writer whose works include award winning films: Coastal Clash, a PBS documentary on problems facing our coastlines, and One Winter Story, an hour-long look at the life of big wave surfer and scientist Sarah Gerhardt, and her book Harlem of the West: The San Francisco Fillmore Jazz Era (published 2006).
