Structures by Lucy de la Vega at Canale Diaz Art Center

Thu 8 Jun, 2017 - Sun 6 Aug, 2017

Structures explores the limits found within architectural lines to define Geometric Abstraction in Photography. This solo show explores the recent works from Miami-based artistic photographer Lucy de la Vega. Her photographs are not random, yet they don’t feel staged: they provide the unforeseen perspective. The geometric abstract composition behind the selected photographs pushes towards what is pure in form and color. However contradictory the link between photography and abstraction may be, Architecture is the show’s underlying connection. This solo exhibition is the Center’s first online-only exhibition while we transit between exhibition spaces.

De la Vega (Havana, Cuba, 1955) is a self-taught photographer that has explored at will and for the past four decades her snapping passion. Although she embraces the digital age and is grateful for the freedom that technology and digital photography has brought to the scene, she remains quite conservative on her artistic process. The artist considers each photograph taken as a once-in-a-lifetime frame, like in the film epoch she tells us: “Each detail has to be carefully thought of beforehand and I frame each photograph as if I only had one chance to get it right.”
