Rafael Soldi's project "Life Stand Still Here" explores internal dialogues and moments when life and its darkest facets can offer monumental symbolism. Through a variety of image-making techniques, Soldi deftly mixes portraiture and abstraction as a metaphor for personal loss. His images open the interplay between the viewer's histories and his, a kind of dark mirroring that makes visible their shared psychic struggles. Based in Seattle, Soldi received his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. His work is in the permanent collections of the Tacoma Art Museum, Frye Art Museum, and the King County Public Art Collection. Soldi is the co-founder of the Strange Fire Collective, an online magazine and project dedicated to highlighting work made by women, people of color, and queer and trans artists.

"Surface Tension", a joint exhibition with Christopher Russell, is organized by Julia Bradshaw, Assistant Professor of Art and New Media Communications at Oregon State University. The exhibition is in conjunction with the Society of Photographic Educators Northwest Regional Conference, which will take place at Oregon State University on 20/21 October. Alongside the Corvallis Art Center, SPENW is a sponsor of this exhibition. For more information contact: Julia Bradshaw
