Crossing The Blue Hour, by Peter Francis Barnett and Shane C. Smith

it’s a moment (?)…

It occurs over the course of a few seconds… a vivid recollection of a night in a room… she’s on the foot of the bed talking, her hands clasped together in front of her.  In the window behind her, a red neon sign.

Guest Room is pleased to present a new photographic series by Peter Francis Barnett and new mixed-media sculptures and paintings by Shane C. Smith.

The Blue Hour is a series of six photographs inspired by the visual aesthetic of David Lynch’s 1986 drama Blue Velvet and specifically by the character Dorothy Vallens.

1983, Shane C. Smith

Crossing, is a real noir, the ghost of Sarah Fox, whose body was found in Inwood Hill Park, the woods I walk in daily. Born in 1983, she is my age, now gone; I walk the same paths through the yellow tulip trees.
-Shane C. Smith
