Lael Corbin: Camber

November 17-December 29, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, November 16, 6:30-8:30 PM

Artist Walk-through: Saturday, November 17, 11 AM

 

Lael Corbin is a San Diegobased artist working in sculpture, photography, and site-specific installation. He explores works sites and laboratories as spaces where the evidence of manufacturing processes, the beauty of raw materials, and the tension between organization and chaos blend together with scientific inquiry and poetic imagination to create complex and stimulating experiences.

 

Lael Corbin’s recent work has been an investigation into those forces that push forward, hold down, pull back, and lift up, through a series of experiments conducted in order to gain a better understanding of how these forces work and to explore their aesthetic potential. The results have been measured by the effect of the force on both the object and the artist.

 

For CAMBER, Lael will present research from the last series of force experiments Thrust, Weight, Drag, Lift. He will also use the exhibition space as a launch pad for a series of new endeavors that continue to explore forces, inertia and their effect.

 

Lael received an MFA from San Diego State University. Before that he studied at Point Loma Nazarene University where he is currently an Associate Professor. He teaches photography, sculpture, and exhibition preparation as well as co-directs PLNU’s Keller Gallery. He is a 2007 San Diego Art Prize winner as well as the 2010 recipient of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s Cerca award.

LISA KANEMOTO: DARK MIRROR

Selected photographs from the book DARK MIRROR

November 17-December 29, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, November 16, 6:30-8:30 PM

 

In Dark Mirror, Lisa Kanemoto presents 42 duo tone photographic images surveying crucial episodes in her life from childhood to adulthood. These experiences engendered feelings ranging from dread to love, from inadequacy to personal satisfaction. They include surviving Nazism in Germany, marriage, a child's mental illness, depression, alcohol dependency, breast cancer, and the emergence of an artistic vocation and the search for the means to express it. The images in Dark Mirror were produced between 1980 and 1995.

 

 

There were joyous times, but I never had the desire to portray them. Instead, I was driven to explore my sorrows and torments and transform them into self-images. It gave me a sense of inner order, acceptance and peace.  —Lisa Kanemoto
