Lauren Marsolier creates images that represent the mental process of transition and our conflicted relationship to a world that is becoming increasingly fast-paced and dematerialized. We repeatedly get a feeling of disorientation, dissonance and false reassurance, as we try to adjust to a post-modern society marked by the implosion of the boundaries between image and referent, appearance and reality. The loss of concrete connections to the objects of our senses creates a void within us, and unleashes a flow of new and elusive perceptions. Giving them the visual characteristics of a landscape is her way to explore them. 

Unlike traditional photography, which seizes an instant of reality, her images are constructed from photographs taken in various locations over the course of several months, then layered and blended until the real and the fabricated become a seamless composition whose verisimilitude prompts the viewer to question the nature of both the medium and its content.

Marsolier is a French artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. She has been the recipient of the 2013 Houston Center for Photography fellowship award, where she will have a solo exhibition next summer. She also received the 2012 Photo Center NW first place award, and was part of the Humble Art Foundation 2012 selection of "31 Women in Art Photography" exhibited at the Hasted Kraeutler gallery in New York. Her images are among American Photo Magazine's Best of 2012, and the British Journal of Photography featured her as one of 20 photographers to watch in 2013. 

This 2nd solo exhibition at the Robert Berman Gallery will present recent images from her ongoing body of work, “Transition”.
