John Divola - Physical Evidence
Jun 17, 2017 — Sep 09, 2017
Gallery Luisotti is pleased to present "John Divola: Physical Evidence". Divola, whose series "Abandoned Paintings" (2007-08) was featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, is known for his visual exploration of abandonment and ruin in the Southern California landscape, and often with a sense of humor bordering on pathos. "Physical Evidence" features two bodies of work, "Untitled 1990" (1990) and the "Five Prints Portfolio" (1987), that may (at first) seem distant from the concerns of his more recent work. However, these two rarely exhibited bodies of work show Divola’s long held commitment to exploring the contradictions of a medium caught between document and artifice.
