Deborah Orloff’s Holzwege series

Deborah ImagesDeborah Orloff’s intriguingly surreal Holzwege series of photographs will fill the Crary Art Gallery in January. Ms. Orloff hails from Toledo, OH, where she teaches New Media at the University of Toledo. These works are deftly layered landscape images, arresting in their beauty, and cognitively topsy-turvy. Despite the visual confusion, we are drawn into them by a “holzwege” (a “holzwege” in German is a forest path leading to nowhere), inviting us – or stopping us abruptly – in these impossible and complex landscapes.
