Mixed Media Photography
Luciana Abait is an painter and photo-artist from Argentina, who has lived and worked in Miami and now Los Angeles. She draws inspiration from these warm surroundings. Her latest series are underwater shots of swimming pools, doing for them with photography what David Hockney did with painted canvases. The artist presents her works like paintings, developing her photographs in shades of aquamarine on canvas and painting over the surface with clear gel. In addition to her canvases Abait’s underwater compositions are presented as light boxes. Each work drawers the viewer into the peaceful world which exists beneath the surface.
