A retrospective exhibition of photo-based artists Louviere+Vanessa including past and current work.
Opening Reception: Friday, March 1, 5-7pm
Exhibition is on view March 1 - April 20, 2019
Obscura Gallery presents a solo exhibition with the New Orleans prolific duo Louviere+Vanessa, including past and current work from their various series over the last 15 years. Louviere+Vanessa’s style exudes a Southern Gothic pairing of transgression and beauty through mystery, dark humor, and the supernatural, often involving the figurative use of protagonists such as humans and animals alluding to literature and philosophy. The artists effectively combine the mediums and nuances of film, photography, painting, and printmaking resulting in mixed media works that use gold and silver leaf, resin, varnish, wax, charcoal, and various other mediums, as well as the artists handmade frames.
The exhibition opens with a reception on Friday, March 1, 2019 from 5-7pm at Obscura Gallery, 1405 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, New Mexico. The exhibition is on view through April 20, 2019.
