Ted Kincaid: The Trinity Portfolio

Talley Dunn Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of “The Trinity Portfolio” by artist Ted Kincaid,
a series of fifteen photographic meditations on the Great Trinity Forest in southeast Dallas. Sponsored
in part by a generous grant by the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, “The Trinity Portfolio” is the
culmination of Kincaid’s dedicated year-long study of the largest, urban bottomland hardwood forest
in America. Kincaid’s new portfolio represents his first series of straight, unmanipulated works shown
publicly.

“Having grown up in Dallas, I was always looking to other areas of the country for forests, parks and other
protected and minimally impacted areas of natural beauty,” Kincaid recently stated. “It never occurred to
me in my younger years that this area ever existed, despite having driven by it regularly for most of my life.”
These new works express the artist’s interest in and respect of the natural world and all the beauty and wonder
found within. While the aesthetic and tonal palette of the images reference historical photographic processes,
including the Pictorialist movement of the early 20th century, “The Trinity Portfolio” presents a contemporary vision
of an Eden-like woodland.

“I sincerely hope that these images will focus attention on the need to protect and nurture areas of natural
wonder such as these, particularly in rapidly expanding urban areas,” says the artist. “The Great Trinity Forest
provides this city with an opportunity to escape and contemplate. We have so few places that afford this
experience and chance for a connection with the natural world.”

“Ted Kincaid: The Trinity Portfolio” is on view in the middle gallery and runs concurrently with “Aaron Parazette:
Irregular Quadrilaterals” in the main gallery and “Robyn O’Neil: Castle Elementary” in the project space. Talley Dunn
Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm and by appointment. To request more information
