Enantiodromia / 2016 / Exhibited at La Fábrica, Madrid. In the 1930’s Dr. Carl Jung revived the principles of Enantiodromia, a term first coined by greek philosopher Heraclitus. It sates that wholeness can be attained by understanding that duality is actually non-duality, each working force, internal or external, is necessary for its opposite to exist. As darkness grows, light fades and so on in reverse in a continuous collaboration. These photographs draw a pursuit to achieve a personal understanding and visual translation of this transcendental philosophy.
Departure / 2014/ Butter Gallery, Miami. The logic of abstract image construction delivers diverse and elegant forms in Yuri Tuma’s new photography show, Departure. A series of chromatic works anchors the main exhibition space with dreamy spiral compositions that shift between soft colors of dawn or sunset. The work in Butter Gallery’s project space is a strong counterpoint, juxtaposing the lightness of the circular work with hard-edged black and white structures. These two bodies of work directly engage the sophisticated geometries that lie concealed within everyday mobile pics, offering viewers a spectrum of potential experiences that typically remain unseen.
