Coincidence: Works by Louviere+Vanessa
Gallery II at Polk Museum of Art
Vanessa Brown and Jeff Louviere (known collectively as Louviere+Vanessa) are creative partners working to expand the experimental properties of photography. From their home and studio in New Orleans, they constantly strive to push the bounds of image making and reinterpret traditional ideas of photography; using such alternative materials as gold leaf, Super 8mm film, and even blood, Louviere+Vanessa succeed in breaking with convention. Their surreal subjects emerge from a sense of literary romanticism and tragedy and often include satirical undertones. This exhibition will be a survey of their work and will include pieces from nine different series of works.
