ART In the ARTHOUSE is proud to present stunning works of photography: JAVIERA ESTRADA: SALT & SEA. The exhibit will be on display at Laemmle's Playhouse 7 Theatre in Pasadena from June 12 to Sept. 12.
Join us THURSDAY, June 12 (6-9pm) for the opening. In addition to the art exhibit, the evening will include a video presentation about the artist as well as our signature selection of wine and fine cheeses.
Javiera Estrada’s SALT AND SEA series was shot in the early morning hours at El Matador Beach in Malibu California. These exquisite Silver Gelatin Editions are offered in editions of seven.
Water is life, in all its forms. Salt is similarly essential, offering healing, purification, and protection from forces unknown.
All shapes in Javiera Estrada’s work are harmonious, amorphous within the construct of Nature. The obvious allure and mask of femininity, allow Mother Earth to forge through with an undulating force, a will that moves in accordance with the Ocean, the Great Waters... and the Salt that provides a cleanse resulting in regeneration.
The Spirit of the work is based on the Anima, the Feminine archetype. The powerful rocks, the tangled seaweed, the receptive qualities of the figure... all echo this notion.
The choice of shooting in black and white and utilizing an analogue printing technique both speak to the tone of beauty, rhythm, and a defined balance that the subject and the work demands.
