Jungle Road

LAURIE LAMBRECHT • JUNGLE ROAD

Exhibition: April 16 – June 18, 2017
Gallery reception: Saturday, May 13, 4-6pm

The Center for Photography at Woodstock is pleased to present Jungle Road, a solo exhibition featuring Laurie Lambrecht. Combining her passion for meditative explorations of nature and the materiality of knit yarn from her previous career as knit wear designer, this photographic series embraces subtle play of colors and texture through contemplative studies of nature. Rich in analogy, these carefully composed images reveal subtleties that gently shift calm to energetic, pensive to dynamic. Each curve or straight line of the hanging vines carries enough gravitas to captivate our attention, shift the mood  and stimulate our imagination.

Lambrecht writes, “Being in nature for me is an emotional experience, one filled with awareness of time’s progression, triggers of memory and evidence of possibilities, past and future. I relate to a place by watching and being present. My work is a visual investigation of ecology especially the interaction of plants in the landscape.”

Lambrecht began this series in December 2012 while photographing the facilities at the Rauschenberg Artist Residency Program on Captiva Island in Florida. “In these photographs I experienced the entangled twisting vines with tactile sensation like a weaver but touched only with my eyes the scattered colors, flaring light and varying depths of vegetation.
