Cara Cole (Art) is presenting photographic work at High Noon Gallery, 106 Eldridge Street. New York, NY, Nov. 15-Dec. 10 with the exhibition opening at 6 p.m. Nov. 16. Cole’s complex photographic images both enchant and disturb, and their layered and accomplished surfaces reveal the kinds of experiences we have too few images of, and often no words for. Their content is structured to simulate dream, or hallucinatory, states. Like such states, the images easily give rise to stories — though not simple ones and not ones with conventional narrative closures.
