Looking at Lorna Bieber

I’ve been spending some time looking at Lorna Bieber’s work on her site at www.lornabieber.com. I love the rhythm, cropping and variation in her sequences, the scale, and the use of mechanical reproduction in her practice.

Her “Winter Trees” share some visual commonalities with John Divola’s “Artificial Landscapes” from his “Continuity” series.

Both sets are looking disturbingly magical to me during this holiday season.

About Lisa Young

My hybrid studio practice includes installation, book, video, web, and photography. My projects examine the intersection of the pedestrian, the repetitive, and the imperfect with the transcendent, the beautiful, and the perfect. I am interested in the way that the repetitive action of accumulating and organizing can create its own poetics. I grew up in Illinois, completed the Whitney ISP program in 1996, and teach Interdisciplinary Synthesis at the Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge, MA.
