LEFT’s work may be seen on
Taking as a point of departure the images found on rocks and stones, LEFT plays with our ideas of time, equating the artist's craft with the natural processes of erosion. Nature is a sculptor, according to LEFT, and sculptures can be found everywhere on earth. On these stones, the portrait of an ancient Greek philosopher, a native of Africa, even the form of an extraterrestrial being may appear. Thematically, the work raises the following question: where exactly does the meaning of a work of art belong, in the work itself or with the viewer?One of LEFT's most provocative statements concerns the length of time a work of art takes to be created -the millions of years of natural erosion, or the instant of the photograph, which uses point of view and light to highlight the surface and shape in a unique way. Whatever the answer, LEFT's probing into the collaboration between nature and man brings forth beautiful photographic images. LEFT currently resides in Athens, Greece.
About Altered States of Reality:
Altered States of Reality provides a glimpse of the world as captured through the lens of a camera, technology, and through the artists own inner vision. The gifted artist’s participating in Altered States of Reality offer us a perception of the world, as seen, through a complex, enigmatic fusion of emotions and technical mastery. The old boundaries have come tumbling down and the new reality has been altered and is forever changing. This exciting exhibition allows us to challenge our ideas, parables and perceptions that constitute our own reality.
