LISA K BLATT: Untitled

Bruno David Gallery is showing untitled, a video work in the Media Room, by San Francisco-based artist Lisa K. Blatt. Untitled made in the Nevada desert shows a beautiful landscape with intermittent and unpredictable rifle shots.

Lisa K. Blatt states “Landscapes attract me with their light, beauty, simplicity. I stay for their darkness, complexity, and secrets. My art explores how landscape may be defined by what is not visible, what is memory or what is trace. My work examines issues of perception (both how and what we see), pop culture, and social and political issues.”

Blatt’s artwork explores the way landscape is defined not only by what we see, but also by what we don’t see. These invisible determinants take the form of memory, but also of trace elements left by past events. Contrails from stealth planes once flown over the desert sky and explosions at nuclear testing sites give two clear examples of the way memory and traces, we don’t immediately perceive are often even combined. Here landscape represents both presence and absence

Lisa K. Blatt lives and works in San Francisco but travels around the world to take landscape photographs and videos with a particular focus on deserts, both hot and cold. Blatt’s work has been exhibited on six continents including at the Shanghai Biennial, China; the Havana Biennial, Cuba; Museo de Tigre, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Reykjavik Museum of Photography, Iceland; Wexner Center for the Arts, Ohio; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Contemporary Art Platform and Freud Museum, London; Kunstverein Haus, Germany; Mills College Art Museum, Oakland; and Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, CA; and Phillips Collection. This is her fifth solo exhibition with the gallery
