Beauty among the flood Woods Gallery “De-con-struct” Exhibit

The Woods Gallery, 26415 Scotia Rd, lower level of the Huntington Woods Library, is proud to host “De-con-struct” a vibrant photo exhibit by architectural & fine art photographer Gene Meadows. The show runs April 10-May 29th. Entrance to the gallery and reception is free of charge.


Gene’s most current series deconstructs technology and manipulates these images infusing them with vibrant color. “De – con – struct,” (reducing something to its’ inner core in order to reinterpret”) is inspired by the personal aftermath of the flood of 2014. Gene states, “I am wired to recycle, repurpose and/or reimagine objects around me. As I began dismantling my ruined technology equipment, I was drawn to examine their inner components. I found them fascinating, delicate, beautifully designed & engineered of metals such as platinum, gold, silver and copper. I began collecting & photographing them. In this way, sharing them in an exhibition, I feel I have given them a new usefulness and a second life.”
