JANE STEVENS : FRAGMENTS IN TIME 

Ceres Gallery is pleased to present Jane Stevens’ Fragments in Time: photographs that combine images from past and present moments to create a transformed reality.
Fragments and portals into the past are powerful reminders of the passage of time and the ever-changing environment. These photographs are ae reflection on how the past affects out personal lives and alters the future.

The landscapes in the photographs are visual metaphors for the artist’s transformative process and journey of reclaiming a sense of self and connection to the world/community.
Stevens has exhibited her work nationally and internationally including the Los Angeles Photography Center; Galeria Tonalli, Mexico City; University of Arizona, Tucson; Alexandria Museum of Art, Alexandria, Louisiana; Speed Art Museum, Louisville, Kentucky; and Laguna Gloria Art Museum, Austin, Texas.
