DESCRIPTION

BMO Harris Bank Chicago Works: Laura Letinsky will debut the artist’s newest body of work, a photographic series titled Ill Form and Void Full (2010–11). Letinsky is known for elegantly composed still-life photographs that engage with sentiments of desire, fulfillment, and loss, as well as the fleeting nature of time. Her studio-based practice has evolved recently in a new direction that incorporates reproductions of images that drastically complicate the perception of space within the field of her compositions. Actual objects, such as papaya, cherry pits, silverware, and ripped paper, along with flat images taken from art reproductions (hers and others) as well as decor and cooking magazines, are carefully arranged, resulting in a disorienting collage within the photograph.
