Beyond ART: G.L. August Loessberg Artist Talk

  • JRB Art at the Elms 2810 North Walker Avenue Oklahoma City, OK, 73103 United States (map)

G. L. August Loessberg’s exhibition is titled "The Walls of El Tuito." El Tuito is a ranching town in the foothills of Mexico, south of Puerto Vallarta. For several hundred years, the walls of El Tuito have existed in a dynamic state of decay and restoration, painted and repainted by the townspeople in lush, vibrant colors that echo the pueblo’s identity over the centuries. To see the walls of El Tuito is to glimpse both the passage of time and time suspended, infinitely overlaid with the consequences of history, weather, and human interaction. Modern works of art emerge from this chaos, neither designed nor interpreted by humans, but created instead by the hands of time. The works Loessberg has included in this series, either magnified portions or full-size homages of the walls themselves, capture moments that, by their very nature of evolution and destruction, will never come again.

Loessberg has specialized in photography and graphic design since 1971. With subjects that encompass portraiture, landscape, pop art and abstraction, each of Loessberg’s creations carries a unique narrative, brought to life through custom formulations of permanent pigments on acid free substrates.
