Carly Rae / by Maya Alexis

 

I've been working at a contemporary art gallery here in La for almost a month. Last week one of our resident artists, Carla, joined us for lunch. As always my boss made some gross concoction, cold organic Avocado soup with garlic and lemon. 


These archival pigment prints by Carla Jay Harris demonstrate much of her trademark style: dramatic contrast, heavy saturation, and abstract compositions. Her collaboration of concentrated sunlight and use of office equipment really capture the sadness, emptiness, and ghostly presence of many corporate office buildings (or at least the Oakland Caltrans building). Harris' very rare* and intimate prints will be on view at our gallery later this year. Check back here for more images and information about Carla's solo show this October.
