Rainbow Cabin, by Nathaniel Wallace

The exhibition of Nathaniel Wallace’s medium format photography on display at the Orangeburg County Fine Arts Center includes this intriguing print of a small white house with painted windows. Called “Rainbow Cabin” it is a digitized print from a scanned negative. The paper and inks used are special archival materials that are more permanent than ordinary photography inks. It is a large print, about twenty-two by twenty six inches with rich details.
This particular photograph is probably my favorite in the current exhibition. The colors give the simple white architecture a cathedral-like feel - like Amiens in miniature.

The Orangeburg County Fine Arts Center is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am until 4:30 PM and from 9:00am until 12:00 on Friday.

To the left is number sixteen in my painting series “Thirty-three days of the Puma.” It has been relaxing to do these at the end of the day. They are taking on the appearance of manuscript illustrations - probably from my many years of looking at Persian miniatures and Chinese silk paintings
