March 26th, Daytona Beach: Lorna Bieber Lecture and Reception

Southeast Museum of Photography
Lorna Bieber is to give a lecture in conjunction with the exhibition IMAGES: FOUND AND LOST.

Sunday, March 26, 2011 at 5:00 p.m.
Reception 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Admission: FREE

About the Exhibition:
Continues through May 29th, 2011

“These were landscapes and illustrations for a comfortable bourgeois sensibility. Nature as mere ornament; landscape as empty metaphor. Wilderness is hinted at here, but scrupulously drained of all its unruliness. Lost are the power, chaos and visceral energy of wild nature; substituted with a relaxed, sumptuous glowing landscape that appears to hold no threat, promise no disruption and undermine no feeling of security. Carefully placed trees, perfect blossoms, vertiginous cliffs, moonlit stillness wrapping the hushed land and picturesque peasants and yeomen laboring elegantly in the fields. Nothing breaks the spell in these disturbingly serene vistas. And yet they are so utterly false as to be, perhaps, a little disturbing. Lorna Bieber mines this territory for her imagery. Her finished pieces are ambiguous, spatially-complex, dream-like and redolent with memory. They excavate an ersatz nature that appears impenetrable, ambiguous, remote, detached and unknowable. A receding nature ever pulling away from our grasp.”
