ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

The neglected places in this world are not the first we think of when we think of beauty, but if we look, instead of just see, we can find beauty and wonder. Through her artwork, Kari Achatz takes us along as she explores the Buffalo Central Terminal and Buffalo Grain Silos through colors, texture, secret spaces, and altered perspectives. Achatz's large-scale photographs and photo sculptures hint at the essence of what once was in these fascinating abandoned spaces, telling the story of their past and revealing a forecast for their more re-envisioned future.
