Where You End and I Begin

Laura Lit
Where You End and I Begin
June 17 - July 27, 2017

In her exhibition, Where You End and I Begin, Laura Lit creates portraits that capture the likeness, specific expression, and telling moments of her subjects. This series of oil paintings uses chiaroscuro and realistic detail to establish attitude and anatomy. Lit draws inspiration from a variety of sources including noir film, portrait and fashion photography, the work of Renaissance and Dutch masters, Surrealism, and psychology. Her work explores the battle between her subjects’ internal and external worlds, their sexuality, and sense of isolation.

Pure Imagination
August 3 - September 7, 2017

Women & Their Work presents the national debut of Dutch photographer, Micky Hoogendijk's, first photo book, "Through the Eyes of Others", alongside her solo exhibition, "Pure Imagination." In her exhibition, Hoogendijk, now living in LA, presents portraiture reflecting the concealed vulnerability and beauty of her subjects. Her work is characterized by sharp iconic images that reveal the power of naked emotion and vulnerability through innovative printing technologies to create images with depth and richness. She questions existence and life by exploring themes such as religion, daily life, androgyny, and mythology.
