Artist Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia is in the habit of taking things — especially paintings — apart and putting them back together again; recently, he de- and re-constructed his wife’s childhood.
Segovia is known for shredding paintings and weaving them into art that is literally more than the sum of its parts. His new series …by Deborah Calderwood metaphorically performs the same process on a trove of his wife’s childhood art-class drawings, incorporating her youthful lexicon of characters, fantasies, and out-sized signatures into sophisticated images that touch on themes of authorship and naivety.
See the full Calderwood series on Segovia’s website, visit the exhibition or attend a talk with the artist at LA’s CB1 Gallery, and see more of Segovia’s work in The Story of O at his alma mater, Otis College.
