uses lovingly handmade props and costumes to explore pop culture and
what he calls, “the tragedy of becoming an adult.” Using himself, his
wife and daughter, and his friends as performers, Haupt creates pictures
that are absurd, funny, and poignant tableaus of monsters, heroes,
villains, and devils.
Through these images he shares his feelings, weighs the value of
nostalgia, and basks in the enduring appeal of Batman and The Mighty
Morphin Power Rangers. Though his work celebrates the staged, the
fictitious, and the performed Real to Me is also a sincere, peculiar, joyful, delirious, and real family portrait.
Brooklyn based artist Hernease Davis will
present new multi-media work with silk cyanotypes, sound installation,
and silver gelatin prints. Davis' studio practice has been influenced by
a love and study of music and the crafting of environments that allow
the artist to explore responsive improvisation and repetition as a means
of growth and healing. As Davis says, "I change, the work changes. As
the work changes, it changes me..."

Silver Eye is thrilled to announce the second edition of our regional biennial survey.
biennial was created to fill a gap in the cultural landscape; we needed
to share the work of the very best photographers in our region, (which
we decided to define as the wide and rich space between the art capitals
of New York City and Chicago, with Pittsburgh at its center.) We needed
this show to be thorough, thoughtful, and engaging, and we needed it to
be more than a picture on the walls. We needed it to be a
deep, fun, and provocative conversation with our community. The result
is Radial Survey, a biennial exhibition of the preeminent emerging and
mid-career photo based artists working within 300 miles of Pittsburgh
