OCTOBER 28 – DECEMBER 4, 2010
Light & Wire Gallery presents an exhibition of new works by Lia Lowenthal. Economic Models examines the role of simulation and models of perception through notions of materiality. Using varying degrees of pattern and abstraction to offset the perceived object, these works intend to replicate the experience of unfolding a false reality from within the physical world.
Combining a unique method of drawing, painting, collage, digital photography, and sculpture, these works focus on objects within the urban and natural environment as material for investigation. Today, even industrial materials are simulated and often lose their material advantages or function altogether, widening the gap between the object and its referent. Furthermore, this lack of viability questions the necessity for the duplication at all. The simulation as a result becomes profoundly evident, entertaining, and futile.
Lia Lowenthal is an artist living and working in New York City.
Light & Wire Gallery is a web-based art space that explores the boundaries of viewing art outside of a conventional gallery format, while highlighting work by emerging artists.
