About

There is a sense of immutable, eternal life. And in these new works there is a sense about Cy’s own continuum—the ongoing quality of his great legacy and his art—it’s not a memorialization, it’s a living thing.
—Sally Mann

Gagosian is pleased to present Remembered Light, an exhibition of color and black-and-white photographs by Sally Mann, taken between 1999 and 2012.

Mann is regarded for her images of intimate and familiar subjects rendered sublime and disquieting: children, landscapes, family, and the nature of mortality. In previous projects, she explored relationships between parent and child, husband and wife, brother and sister, nature and history. In her latest exhibition of photographs spanning more than a decade, she records in fleeting impressions the working habitat of the late Cy Twombly, her close friend and mentor.

Twombly and Mann are both natives of Virginia. The landscape to which Twombly returned each year is also the memoryscape of Mann’s connection to him. This was documented in her recent and celebrated memoir Hold Still, in which she recalls his elemental nature, his southern courtesy, and his wry and gentle humor. Recalling her time with Twombly, Mann writes, “Our part of the South, remote, beautiful, and patinaed with the past, allows us such a remove, the distance of another time.”
