Artist's Opening Reception: Maroesjka Lavigne at Robert Mann Gallery

Posted By Administration, Sunday, March 30, 2014

Exhibition Dates:  April 3 - May 17, 2014

Opening Reception with the Artist:
Thursday, April 3
6:00 - 8:00 pm

This exhibition, Island, marks Maroesjka Lavigne's first solo show at the gallery.  The young Belgian photographer spent four months driving across Iceland.  There is something straight and direct to her shooting.  An underlying structure holds her frames, which at times can appear flat, even stark, but always they are lined with a sense of awe or uncanny.  The simple moments become magical.  Lavigne brings us a range of images including landscapes, still lives, and portraits, which together weave an overarching vision of place as a whole.  In the time the works were made winter melts into spring, and while snow is almost a constant there works by no means lack color.  In fact, color pops from her frames and adds a bold richness to her scenes.  

Maroesjka Lavigne holds a Master in Photography from the Ghent University.  The Island series has won a LensCulture New & Emerging Photographers Grand Prize, and was shown in the 2012 Photo Academy Awards, and the Unseen Photo Fair in the Netherlands.   Lavigne's work has also been featured in the New York Times Style Magazine, Aesthetica Magazine, and the FOAM Magazine Talent issue.
