That San Antonio photographer Charlie Kitchen’s photo-constructions are visually arresting, opening fresh and odd vistas onto familiar landscape imagery, is perhaps beside the point of his explorations — but it’s certainly a damn fine opening argument as to why you’ll want to attend his new solo exhibit. For Kitchen, who graduated with a degree in photography from Texas State University in 2014 and currently works at Artpace, the importance of his work is in what he calls “pseudo-scientific analysis of the fundamental qualities of photography.” Part analog and part digital, Kitchen’s process involves the use of large-format cameras, specialized film masks and 3D-printed templates that are inserted in the camera during exposure for a kind of in-camera collage. The resulting works, aside from being fascinating and beautiful, are multiple exposures that combine two forms of representation. These dazzling pieces, therefore, can be enjoyed and understood on multiple levels, proffering technical wizardry right alongside aesthetic pleasure. Free, 2-4pm Sat, Southwest School of Art, Santikos Lobby Gallery, 1201 Navarro St., (210) 224-1848, swschool.org. — JC
