Selections from the Hyperspace 17 Series
Letitia Quesenberry uses color lenses, filters, shadow, and light as a means of exploring vision’s ambiguities. Her artistic concerns involve the cultivation of an aesthetic inscrutability, a type of visual veiling to destabilize perception. To this end she has worked with drawing, painting, photography, text, and light itself. She accentuates nuance, combining semitransparent materials like color correction film, resin, beeswax, and sanded plexiglass with reflective or opaque materials like graphite, spray paint, plaster, mirrors, coal slag, and mica dust. Through the play of materials, surfaces, and technologies, Quesenberry surveys the boundaries of visual perception, memory’s effect on present experience, and how these relate to ideas of certainty.
