Sadly we are not able to see our friends and supporters in New York City at Paris Photo NY/AIPAD this spring. Please find some joy in Gilbert Garcin’s photographs and stay safe and well! – Lisa Sette

Gilbert Garcin: Existence is Elsewhere
Gilbert Garcin’s photographs engage us as philosophical archaeology, as surrealist theater, and as contemporary allegory.
The artist himself, often portrayed in a dark overcoat, serves as an every-person character, his works honed upon humanity’s current, perhaps timeless, crisis of conscience: the unbearable frictions of our relationships to ourselves and one another in an overwhelmingly complex and interconnected world.
Garcin’s dream-like constructions produce seamless manipulation of light, depth and proportion. Each carefully arranged scene is unconcerned with digital distractions and uncluttered with extraneous objects – created from handmade sets and cut-out figures.
Garcin’s ingenious photographs remind us that even amidst monumental darkness, we can continue to find unexplainable sources of light.
Most images are available as 8 x 12”, 12 x 16” and 20 x 24” gelatin silver prints made in editions of 8 or 12 in each size, depending on the image.
Please call: (480) 990 – 7342 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for prices of specific pieces. Please note: additional works are available beyond exhibition images shown below.

Our physical space may be temporarily closed but we would love to hear from you.
