Jackson Fine Art is honored to celebrate the final stop of Sally Mann's beloved retrospective, A Thousand Crossings, at the High Museum with a concurrent exhibition of her 2016 series Remembered Light and select southern landscapes spanning the artist's remarkable career. Though her subject matter has varied over the years, Mann's work consistently retains a fascination with both material and symbolic notions of place, in particular the American South.

From the late 1990s into the 2000s, Mann honed in on her relationship with the southern landscape by taking photographs in Mississippi and Louisiana for her Deep South series (2005), as well as Civil War battlefields for Last Measure (2000). Georgia and Deep South - on view at Jackson Fine Art - hail from this period and explore what Mann has called the "corner posts of my conscious being: memory, loss, time, and love...the stage on which these are played out is always the Southern landscape; terrible in its beauty, in its indifference."

Remembered Light takes as its subject a different kind of place - the Lexington, Virginia studio of Cy Twombly, with whom Mann had a years-long friendship. Mann takes the title from Mark Strand's poem, The End: "when the weight of the past leans against nothing, and the sky / is no more than remembered light..." This work is inclusive of pictures made during days spent with Twombly in the studio as well as images of the tactile traces remaining after his passing in 2011. Remembered Light is a quiet rumination on what a life leaves behind. Twombly's absence becomes a presence of its own in this intimate, personal series documenting a creative fellowship.

On the evening of Thursday, October 17th, we will hold an opening reception with Sally Mann in attendance. This event is free and open to the public.
