Event Description

Artists Chris Reisig and Leeza Taylor, will be presenting their new collaborative work of Lenticular ( 3D ) Photography Images August 13 – September 5, 2016. Opening reception will be Saturday, August 13 from 6-9PM, at the BRUCE LURIE GALLERY, 2736 South La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90034.

Artists Chris Reisig and Leeza Taylor, whose creative and life partnership spans nearly 25 years, continue their exploration of the photographic medium with each new body of work. Their art practice reflects the life they have forged together, their children and the friends that are adsorbed into the family. Like many of REISIG AND TAYLOR’ collaborative projects, the physical and emotional landscape of their own domestic space, becomes the point of departure for their artistic vision.

The images of REISIG AND TAYLOR succeed in reinterpreting the singular, handmade prints of photography’s earliest history while utilizing twenty first century technology. They bring their mastery of traditional darkroom techniques and computer generated image making to the labor intensive, digital application of lenticular printing first developed in the 1940s. REISIG AND TAYLOR marry tradition with the contemporary to create images with the uncanny ability to reveal secrets hidden in plain sight. The resulting prints challenge the cutting edge while retaining a classicism that is lush and seductive.

With this new body of work, Reisig and Taylor continue to explore and expand the meticulous process of digital lenticular image making. Using techniques that resemble collage, they interrogate the notion of the singular decisive moment found in classic street photography to create in some a distinctly LA landscape that is both familiar and disconcerting. While their earlier projects focused on the nude and the intimacy of domestic space, this series conjures the invitation of a road trip and takes to the streets. The frame becomes an urban gridlock of disparate imagery drawn from the artists’ photographic archive that navigates the tension between chaos and order. Their intuitive and ongoing visual experiment challenges formal composition, the structure of narrative and the concept of time.
