Being There

Games of contrasts between light and dark, sunlight and shadow and time and space represent the abstract photography of italian-born Luisa Lambri. The artist's interest in twentieth century architectural modernism is combined with a feeling for representation dominated by the way objects are illuminated. Lambri could easily have been included as the abstract photographer influenced by Edward Hopper or inspired by Caravaggio, for the meticulous attention put into "the nurturing" of light.
The artist's latest exhibit 'Being There', is a collection of pictures taken outside of Lautner's Sheats-Goldstein House. The new setting represented a challenge for Lambri, as the more eclectic architectural style differed from her previous more minimalist interests. As a result, the show portrays a journey amongst the foliage, experienced through different exposures.
A must see, currently at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, CA.
