Artist of the Day- Loretta Lux (click on images to enlarge!)

These are photographs. Somehow when I first saw them I thought they were paintings. Looking at one…it seems a pretty picture…seeing them in series …they’re a bit eerie. Lux says of the portrait of the girl and cat on the sofa; “that they are waiting for eternity”.  These melancholy, surreal photos are carefully constructed. Everything extraneous is removed. They are timeless.
