IN ABSENTIA | Dale Goffigon

  • Gladstone 36 1/2 Union Street Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA, 01944 United States (map)

Opening Saturday, March 9, 4-6pm

Dale Goffigon’s photographs are dreamy architectural portraits of old world elegance. These are powerful glimpses of light, color, texture, and form, frequently of forgotten spaces. She layers her fascinating travel experiences onto her background in textiles and weaving, sharing views that range from decay to opulence. All is bound together by the artist’s sensitive ability to frame and capture haunting beauty. 

Goffigon’s work has been published in The Redstone Book of the Eye and Connecticut Cottages & Gardens. She studied at Parsons School of Design, the International Center of Photography and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York.

I am drawn to document architecture, interiors and gardens that represent a wide span of centuries. I look to represent both the classical motifs and the beauty that is found in distressed and decaying structures. The formality of much of the work is guided by the desire for a sense of order and the isolated fragments are abstractions that offer up an element of surprise. - DG
