A similar effect
01.02.16 - 01.30.16
Opening reception: Saturday, January 9, 6 - 10:00 pm
“A similar effect” is an exhibition of new photographs by Los Angeles based artist Caroline Clerc. Formed during an artist residency in Norway, this work posits landscapes. Photographs taken from walks are reconstructed to create new artificial, yet familiar, landscapes. The vista becomes abstract as the landscape is formed anew; the photograph is realized as collapsed sculptural space. This work points to the history of painting and landscape photography, exploring the landscape as a complex site of recognition and cultural construction in which the perspective fluctuates between the unstable and the coherent.
Caroline Clerc is a Los Angeles based artist and educator. Her work has been exhibited in Los Angeles and nationally. Her MFA is from University of California, Santa Barbara. Residencies include Obracadobra, Oaxaca, Mexico; Millay Colony for the Arts, New York; and the Nordic Artists’ Centre Dale, Norway.
Exhibition supported by Nordic Artists Centre Dale.
Jan 2 - Jan 30, 2016. The exhibition will be on view Saturdays, 12pm-4pm and by appointment.
