LOUVIERE + VANESSA
Our tenth special edition of Featured Prints showcases two works by Obscura Gallery Artists Louviere + Vanessa – one is a unique, one-of-a-kind gold leaf and resin image titled, “Lost,” and the other from the series, Chloroform. The print options below include a special price and complementary shipping.
Louviere + Vanessa’s work effectively combines the mediums and nuances of film, photography, painting and printmaking. They utilize Holgas, scanners, 8mm film, destroyed negatives, wax and blood. Since they began professionally showing in 2004, they have been in over 50 exhibits and film festivals in America and abroad. They are included in the collections of the Museum of Art | Houston, the Photomedia Center, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art as well as the film archive for Globians International Film in Potsdam Germany and Microcinema in San Francisco. Jeff Louviere + Vanessa Brown live and work in New Orleans, Louisianna.
L+V speak of their work, “Our style has evolved from working in print making, painting, photography and the conviction that the negative itself is sacred. We now try to avoid the preciousness usually associated with the production and presentation of photography. There are editions to each piece, but in order to maintain an organic feel, no two are exactly alike in size or color…..We were born in the age of reason. But, we live in New Orleans. Time here has no context, the whole city is like a photograph, frozen in an old moment, but continually aging. It is this contradiction of time and place that surrounds us when we make photographs.”
