Gallery Luisotti is excited to announce Christina Fernandez’s upcoming exhibition Residue / Residuo. In her third solo show at Gallery Luisotti, Christina further investigates the urban landscape as portrait in her ongoing series Sereno (2005 – to present). Unlike her previous series Maria’s Great Expedition (1996), in which Christina literally placed herself within her own cultural history, Sereno provides a document of her local, shared landscape. Moving between open spaces and detritus, Christina’s photographs examine the personal, albeit submerged, elements lost in the public realm. Moving beyond the straightforward topographic style of Lavanderia (2002), Sereno transcends the often-depicted bleak, barren landscape of Los Angeles by providing an intimate survey of her immediate surroundings.
The artist’s reception is this Saturday, September 11th from 5 to 7:00pm. The exhibition will run through November 6, 2010.
