UNSAID, by Andrew Gatti is a series of photographic images paired with written sounds (phonetics), which aims to visually represent the dislocated joint that exists between language and media; An indirect correspondence between symbols and sounds, and sounds and ideas.
This series of work, made over three years from 2017-2019, engages in a reimagining of written pronunciations, as sounds, disassociated from their true meaning by representing them photographically, engendering new relationships for the ideas represented by the original word.
We created a digital presentation of the work containing a few different types of materials, including the exhibition catalog, artist statement, artist biography, stills of all the pieces presented, exhibition images showing the work in our space, and the label information.
Andrew Gatti was born in Denver, Colorado. After relocating and spending most of his childhood in Akron, Ohio, he returned to Denver for college and graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Art Degree in Studio Art and Italian Language & Literature from the University of Denver. Soon after, Gatti moved to Italy to attend Studio Arts College International, Florence attaining a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Photography in 2017. Andrew Gatti now resides in New York and has worked with many prominent art organizations including Christie’s Auction House, Cadogan Tate Fine Art, and R & Co.

Jon Verney is a photographer whose work engages in manipulated found imagery, an interplay between the images of forgotten amateur photographers and the powerful sensation of abstract colors and fractal patterns.
Using the contemporary material that is a Polaroid and subjecting them to methods of tangible and controllable manipulation of the photographic emulsion, Verney draws out of them the untapped potential that lay dormant.
