From Dana Stirling’s post at Aint-Bad concerning Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber’s exhibition “Empire:”
Brooklyn artists Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber continue exploring a beautiful and unsettling dystopian future in their new photographic series, ‘Empire.’ Their constructed landscapes feature lush, complicated cities and public spaces in various stages of decay, transformed by an uncertain climate and a shifting social order. Familiar structures appear abused and in decay, but still echo their former grandeur. Amid the bright colors and detailed imagery, there is a deep sense of loss for a culture as well as place. What remains is the foundation of something entirely new.
Empire opens at ClampArt in NYC on November 30, 2017.
