LILY LUDLOW// 15 March – 20 May 2009
Rebecca Camhi gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of American artist Lily Ludlow. Ludlow, a painter and filmmaker is also known as a designer for the fashion brand “Imitation of Christ” and “Somnus”.
Lily Ludlow will be exhibiting works that move between the genres of painting and drawing. Using faint dark lines on a white or beige surface, the works present semi-classical figures. Some are portraits, others present people in more complex postures creating sensual and ethereal quality to the work.
The work has influences of great masters such as Picabia, Picasso and others.
She will also present a short film, which she directed together with Allen Cordell. The viewer watches nine women in a relaxed mood. One whispers to the other some words we cannot hear. At moments these women are presented in an isolated atmosphere.
