“Within each image, ghosts of previous drawings create a sense of time suspended, evoking gesture, atmosphere and memory. Photographs allow me to access the extraordinary, to keep a record of dreams , and to employ the uses of the unkown.”
– Lauren Semivan

Observatory, Lauren Semivan’s first solo show, is a collection of black and white photographs that explore the prolific young artists’ surreal narratives utilizing still life, drawing, painting, and performance. Each photograph documents an imagined moment utilizing staged sets and scenes designed entirely by the artist. Semivan uses an 8 x 10 view camera to commit each image to film.

September 18 – October 26, 2013
