Lichtenstein at the UCLA Hammer Museum's Hammer Projects

January 28 - April 30, 2006

Miranda Lichtenstein's Polaroid photographs capture moments of
transient, dark beauty. Taking her cues from early plant photography,
the gardens of Giverny, and 18th-century paintings by Chardin, she
bathes the living matter in a wash of artificial golden light. Making
use of the most traditional elements of the still life-flowers, plants,
fruits, and vegetables-she imbues them with a disquieting quality. This
is produced, in part, by the painted backdrops in front of which she
places her subjects. Shadowy, slightly misaligned, these backgrounds
subtly destabilize the traditional still-life format, blurring the
lines between what is seen and what is perceived.
