Artist Talk with Louviere+Vanessa – July 10th, 1:00 PM
Jeff Louviere and Vanessa Brown have been collaborating artistically as Louviere + Vanessa since 2004. Bringing together Louviere’s background in painting and printmaking and Brown’s experience with photography, the artists take a multidisciplinary approach to making photographs and films. Their surreal images make reference to dreams, memories and imagined narratives. They often scratch, bury or otherwise distress their negatives, layering their images with alternative materials such as blood, wax and gold.
Louviere + Vanessa’s work has been shown in over 50 shows and film festivals including the Postdam International Film Festival in Germany and the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Their work is included in the prestigious collections of the Museum of Fine Art in Houston, the New Orleans Museum of Art and the George Eastman House. The couple lives and works in New Orleans and are represented by A Gallery For Fine Photography.(agallery.com).
Springbox gallery is open Tuesday through Friday, 10 AM – 5 PM and Saturday 11 PM – 5 PM, otherwise by appointment: 503-228-1600
