Mark Ruwedel: Records
Mark Ruwedel: Records at Yossi Milo Gallery. "...The series Desert Houses shows houses in various states of abandonment and decay, suggesting both violence and tragedy. The diptychs in Neighbors, a subset of Desert Houses, pair houses that are seemingly identical but were photographed in different locations. In Splitting, which references Gordon Matta-Clark’s iconic work, Ruwedel’s diptych is of two abandoned, sliced open homes found in different, remote locations in California. Dusk was photographed after the sun disappeared over the horizon, creating subtle, dark tones that parallel the houses’ social and geographical isolation."
