I had the high expectations when I went to this opening. The press release intriguing as this exhibition brings together two interesting artists, one established and one emerging. I knew of Hillman's work, so it was Lia Chavez's work that caught my curiosity.
I got to speak with her at length to understand the collaboration more thoroughly. Her ability to describe the ethos of the work as bodies in motion, bodies under tension, physical and psychologically was absolutely spot on. I found the content and form, both technically challenging and intricate in the final deliver of an emotionally charged body of work. It s obvious to me, Lia is both inspiring and incredibly talented on the rise.
I cannot believe a show of this quality is not being written about everywhere as this exhibition showcases a welcome revolution in digital photography as a pure art form.
Rise, advent, urge and go are in my opinion are stand outs, I recommend you see this exhibition before it closes.
