A solo exhibition featuring new work by Kathy Lovas. This exhibition is available by appointment only.
From Liliana Bloch Gallery:
“The Liliana Bloch Gallery is pleased to announce a new solo exhibition by Kathy Lovas: CLOTHING CRIMES . . . and Misdemeanors. Kathy Lovas’ show was inspired by the true-crime story of her stolen car in the fall of 2016. Her vehicle was found two weeks later, undamaged, but containing a large mysterious pile of clothing. The artist began photographing each item of clothing in her studio at life-size. She then hand-printed each of the 88 photos via the DASS inkjet transfer process to create an alternative artist’s book titled UUMV / OOTD. Continued research led to the creation of several additional works dealing with clothing crimes.
Kathy Lovas’ artworks constitute a career-long investigation into the ontology of photography. Freely moving between photography, sculpture, and installation, Lovas’ projects are often based on historical narratives, memories from her early life, or familiar subject matter from around her home or studio. Lovas’ projects are an examination of photographic indexicality, the archive, and the frame, and they speak in multiple ways to the rapidly evolving definition of photography as they invite viewers’ imaginative participation in our current post-internet collective image environment.
Kathy Lovas holds a B.S. degree in biology from St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame, Indiana, and an MFA in photography from Texas Woman’s University. She is a 1995 recipient of an M-AAA National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in photography and was a 1991 fellow of the American Photography Institute National Graduate Seminar at New York University. Selected solo exhibitions include Lawndale Art Center, Galveston Art Center, Women and Their Work, Handley-Hicks Gallery, Fort Worth, and Liliana Bloch Gallery, Dallas. She has been a resident artist at Project Row Houses, Connemara Conservancy in Allen, TX, and the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida. She has created site-specific installations at DiverseWorks, the Art Museum of Southeast Texas, the Arlington Museum of Art, UTSA Satellite Space at Blue Star, UNT on the Square in Denton, and Warehouse Theater in Greenville, SC. Kathy lives in Dallas and has been on the photography faculty in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas in Denton since 1992.”
