"Staircase'' (digital pigment print), by Suzanne Moxhay, in show "Interiors,'' at Wallace Anderson Gallery, Bridgewater, Mass., through April 14.

The show displays digital pigment prints inspired by the composite photographic images produced in the mid-19th Century and later in early movies. Ms. Moxhay  uses images from a various vintage and contemporary sources.

Artscope notes that she "borrows from the photomontage process developed in the early days of filmmaking in which movie backdrops were matte painted on sheets of glass and then integrated with live-action.

"In her mysterious and memory filled images Moxhay seeks to achieve an ambiguous narrative where fact and fiction intermingle. To create the environments, she experiments with texture, surface, depth, space, scale, movement and architecture, to, 'involve the viewer in the construction of the image, and to make them question it."'
