Shot in abandoned 19th century villas in and around Monte-Carlo from 1980 to 1982, when the artist was a 16 year old teenager, the photographs feature young women in the artist's circle playfully posing in eccentric vintage attire. Shabelewska captures a juxtaposition of space and form with the unique use of light and perspective. The resulting images are provocative and flirtatious. The 12 photographs are 37.5 x 52 inches silver gelatin prints and in an edition of 5, mounted on diebond in black artist frame. About Silas Shabelewska Born and raised in Monaco, Polish-American Silas Shabelewska has practiced photography since the age of 14. At 16, she learned the process of silver gelatin printing. In 1984, Shabelewska enrolled at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where she majored in photography, film and video. Since the late 80’s, Shabelewska has worked predominantly in photography and has photographed art world personalities such as Leo Castelli and Helmut Newton (in Monte-Carlo in 1995). Past solo shows include: The Vermeer Series (Soufer Gallery, New York); Roads America (Björn Ressle Fine Art, New York); Roads (Gallery Kayafas, Boston); Roads (Briggs Robinson Gallery at Soho House, New York); Silas Shabelewska (Patrick Verelst Gallery, Antwerp, Belgium) and PEACE & LOVE (Soufer Gallery, New York).
