Liliana Bloch Gallery presents Leigh Merrill: Cinder Blocks and Cherry Blossoms opening reception
Liliana Bloch Gallery will present Leigh Merrill: Cinder Blocks and Cherry Blossoms. Through digital composite photographs from hundreds of individual photos, Merrill creates images that explore the construction of desire, fiction and beauty in our urban landscapes. The spaces she creates suggest a visual hyperbole - an embellished scene circulating around a small detail or object that fascinated her.
Merrill received her BFA from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and her MFA from Mills College in Oakland, California. She lives and works in Dallas where she is an Assistant Professor of Art at Texas A&M University-Commerce.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 11.
