|Lauren Semivan, Untitled (Bones), 2012|
Each piece oscillates between traditional photographic and drawing processes through the clever and highly controlled use of lighting and a black and white palette. Semivan carefully selects and lights each prop to the point of near abstraction -- a piece of string is easily mistaken for a charcoal line drawn into the frame, a tree branch follows the form of her long hair, curtains follow the form of her dress. The eye naturally settles on the simple, formal connections made between the objects in each frame. Despite the amount of detail, we are never left feeling jarred by the experience of looking at her photographs.
