SPOT PHOTO WORKS, "THE" new Contemporary Photography Gallery in Los Angeles, opens with an exhibition of photographs by artist Dennis DeHart. "Compelled by the connections and conflicts of the natural and cultural worlds, Dennis DeHart's images weave together a mix of landscape, portraiture and still life into pristine color photographs. During a recent artist residency in Finland, DeHart traversed the countryside extensively. The resulting photographs are heavily influenced by Scandinavian aesthetics of light, design, craftsmanship and simplicity."
