This month in Downtown Oakland, California, Chandra Cerrito Contemporary Gallery (CCCG) presents Photo-Synthesis.  It’s an exhibition where flora and fauna get a digital remix, resulting in a variety of innovative and very interesting print types on paper and panel—large and small format.

From the gallery’s press release on the show:

Photo-Synthesis brings together three contemporary artists whose photographic works recontextualize elements of nature. Penny Olson uses nature photography as a starting point for painterly abstract color field images. Stephen Galloway and Young Kim incorporate nature as still life material, extracting natural elements from their original setting, arranging them in their studios and making photographs of the arrangements.

The exhibition runs until July 23, 2011.  An excellent selection of exhibiting images follow after an engaging video dialog with director and curator, Chandra Cerrito:
