The arresting work of photographer J. Michael Sullivan will be on exhibit in “A Magical Narrative” at the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury beginning on February 26 through May 14. Sullivan has over thirty-eight years experience as a professional photographer. Sullivan prefers to approach photography using a conceptual narrative, “especially,” he notes, “given that the widespread assumption of most of the world is that photography must somehow always depict a reality.” Instead, he wants to engage the viewer with his conceptual art and give them a chance to ask themselves: Where does reality begin and end? And which is an illusion? Sullivan believes every person and every object hides a deeper story or mystery. Illusion is everywhere around us—for him most notably in the magic of the mountains, rivers, ocean, sky, and stars. He lives in Marshfield Hills with his wife artist Liz Haywood-Sullivan and their two poodles.
