Mind’s Eye is an exhibition of new work by Deana Lawson on view at David Kordansky Gallery in Los Angeles.
In a collection of artist notes on select works in the exhibition, the artist writes of knowledge production, chance occurrences, dreams, and the cosmic and otherworldly. From memories impressed upon landscapes and immediate environments to polished obsidian as the earliest mirrors, Lawson writes of materiality and the metaphysical, perception and bearing witness both in photography qua experience and experience grounded beyond Western epistemologies.
In 2022, Deana Lawson was awarded the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize and she is the first artist working in photography to be awarded the prestigious Hugo Boss Prize by the Guggenheim Museum in New York. She has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at institutions including Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland (2020); Huis Marseille, Amsterdam (2019); The Underground Museum, Los Angeles (2018); and more. Lawson lives and works in Los Angeles.
