Punch The Sky
solo exhibition at Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA
February 4 - 27, 2011

Artist Talk: Sunday, February 27, 3pm

For the exhibition Punch the Sky, Letha Wilson presents recent work that takes landscape photography as the starting point for sculptural construction and interruption. In her work the ability for a photograph to transport the viewer is both called upon, and questioned; sculptural intervention attempts to compensate for the photograph's failure to encompass the physical site it represents. Letha shoots and prints her own color photographs, often taken in the Western United States, and her work approaches the genre of Landscape Photography with equal parts reverence and skepticism.
