Tuschman exhibit in Baldwin Gallery features blended techniques

Tuschman entrancePart model-maker, part painter and part photographer, Richard Tuschman produces photography that’s a blend of both old and new techniques. That photography is featured in September’s exhibit at the Baldwin Photographic Gallery.

The show, which runs until Sept. 28, features 24 images from Tuschman’s major bodies of work, Hopper Meditations and Once Upon a Time in Kazimeirz. Tuschman makes an on campus appearance Sept. 5 to lecture on the exhibit beginning at 6:30 p.m. in Room 103 in the Bragg Media and Entertainment Building. A reception follows in the gallery.

Tuschman began experimenting with digital imaging in the early 1990s, developing a style that synthesized his interests in photography, painting and assemblage that included dioramas and live subjects. The current display is a mix of commercial and commissioned works.

“The idea of digitally marrying dioramas and live models evolved quite organically over many years of working in both the fine art and commercial spheres,” Tuschman said in a recent interview with Nashville Arts magazine. “It is really a product of my temperament, sensibility and acquired skills.”

Tuschman holds a BFA from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and has been exhibited widely, both in the US and internationally. Accolades and awards include Prix de la Photographie Paris (gold medal, People’s Choice), Critical Mass top 50, international Kontinent awards (1st Place, Fine Art Projects) and Center Project launch Juror’s award (chosen by Roger Watson, Fox Talbot Museum) among others. His photographs have been published on numerous online magazines/journals including Slate, LensCulture, LensScratch and Huffington Post. Tuschman lives and works in New York City.
