SOUTHAMPTON, NY.- JHB Gallery presents its second exhibition of work by artist Amanda Means at Jetsam Studio, Southampton, Long Island. Following the artist’s 2021 presentation at the same venue, this year’s exhibition will focus on examples of Means’ iconic Light Bulb works—including new digital lightbulbs—alongside Abstractions produced using the artist’s characteristic innovative darkroom processes.

For over forty years, Amanda Means has created a body of work that has pushed the boundaries of the photographic medium with her celebrated Leaf, Flower, Water Glass, Light Bulb, and Abstraction series. Means has been a darkroom innovator throughout her career: adapting a 19th century camera for use as an enlarger, photographing objects without the use of negatives, working with a large-format Polaroid camera, and creating a series of remarkable abstracts working only with light and photographic materials. The artist's darkroom alchemy was cited by the Guggenheim Foundation in awarding Means their prestigious Fellowship in 2017 for her contribution to contemporary photography.

The exhibition will include examples from all phases of the artist's career. Alongside key works from Means’ ongoing series in which the materials and chemistry of the darkroom are masterfully manipulated to create sumptuous Abstractions, we will also be debuting new works from the artist's Light Bulb series in archival pigment prints.

Amanda Means has exhibited widely in the U.S. and abroad, and in 2021, was honored with a career retrospective at University Art Gallery, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. The artist’s work is included in many public collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Philadelphia Museum of Art; The Nicola Erni Collection, Switzerland; and National Museum of Photography, Film and Television, Bradford, England.

This year marks the second full summer of JHB Gallery’s exhibition program at Jetsam Studio, the Southampton atelier founded by designer Quinn Pofahl showcasing modern and contemporary furniture and design. The collaboration has provided a unique space for the promotion of creative discourse across fine art, design, and the decorative arts.

JHB Gallery was founded in New York City in 1982 with a strong focus on contemporary art and interdisciplinary practices; we were one of the first galleries in New York dedicated to contemporary photography and experimental image making, and now represent a diverse range of contemporary artists working in all media.
