Myles Dunigan's "Is The Dark Going to Catch Us" is a new exhibit at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library, with black and white images that are reminiscent of photographer Ansel Adams' work. 

Myles Dunigan's "Is the Dark Going to Catch Us" is on view from Nov. 2 through Dec. 31, 2018, at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library.

Dunigan's exhibit is the sixth, and last one of the year, from the partnership of the Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch Library and UForge.

Myles Dunigan's work uses different printmaking styles with photography and other media to produce layered, textured landscapes that straddle the line between abstraction and realism.

The RISD graduate's work is described as, "Rendered in dark, antique hues, hints of scattered flora and mountain terrain weave in and out of more ambiguous motifs resembling cloud bursts or the surface of water."

“In an era of technological saturation and cataclysmic weather, I draw upon the tropes of landscape painting to digitally forge new spaces that evoke the sublime and uncanny,” said Dunigan.

Myles Dunigan's "Is the Dark Going to Catch Us" is on view at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library from Nov. 2 through Dec. 31, 2018. The library is open 10 am to 6 pm Monday through Wednesday, noon to 8 pm on Thursday, and 9 am to 5 pm on Friday and Saturday. The exhibition is on the lower level.
