PAINTING & PHOTOGRAPHY: LEANNE SHAPTON
A singular spin on photography from Canadian artist and graphic novelist Leanne Shapton in which she examines the use of photography in painting, referencing the British pop artist David Hockney; the Latvian- American blurrer of figuration and abstraction Vija Celmins; and the dazzling German abstractionist Gerard Richter. She also refers to her own work which interrogates objects and their owners, combining photographs, architectural plans, text, and her own watercolours.
