Photograms: Life Illuminated,  Featuring “Dark Field”

Exhibition Dates: August 2 – September 28, 2013

Artist and Public Reception, August 2 from 6-9 pm


“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, Langwell’s work elicits responses of disruption, pleasure, and wonder. The immense five-panel piece is a vision of energy, life and death simultaneously.

Langwell’s solo exhibition at The Center features “Dark Field” and includes several photograms from her Black Frame series.
