Leigh Anne Langwell: Photograms: Life Illuminated Photography Exhibition

The Center for Fine Art Photography (Fort Collins)

August 2 - September 28, 2013

  • Public reception: Friday August 2 from 6 - 9p.m

“I have always envisioned the core of the body as somehow illuminate—a self contained lighting storm.” Leigh Anne Langwell

Leigh Anne Langwell’s search for meaning via the human body affords the audience a sensual experience of photography.

Upon experiencing the artist’s immense mural, Dark Field (1999), it is clear that Langwell’s photograms break and exceed traditional photographic strictures. Dark Field conjures feelings of connection with the universe simultaneous with the inner workings of the body. Through the presence of fluidity, ambiguous content and contrasts of dark and light, pure and impure, Langwell’s work elicits bodily responses of disruption, pleasure, and wonder. The five-panel piece is a vision of energy, life and death simultaneously.

“It harbors within it an excess, a rapture, a potential of associations that overflows all the determinations of its “reception” and “production.” Jean Francois Lyotard Photograms: Life Illuminated will be on exhibit in the Center's Online Gallery at c4fap.org, and in the Main Gallery at 400 North College Avenue, Fort Collins, Colorado from August 2- September 28, 2013. The artist’s and public reception will take place August 2, 2013; from 6 - 9p.m. Please join the Center and artists from across the globe, for an evening of art, inspiration, and community. This exhibition is made possible thanks to the generous support of the City of Fort Collins Fort Fund Grant and a Colorado Creates Grant.
