In celebrating the re-opening of the Portrait Society in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, after three months of renovation, the gallery will be presenting three new shows, including Natural History: Barbara Ciurej & Lindsay Lochman.
Ciurej and Lochman’s collaborative photographs features portrait busts of women, cloaked in the forms of plants. Described by the artists as:
“portraits into tangled shadows of time. Grafting techniques from the history of photography, the cyanotype impressions of botanicals pay homage to Anna Atkins’ use of the medium in the nineteenth century…They speak of evanescence and hidden nature.”
Greatly looking forward to the opening tonight!
