Lamson, Gloria

glamsonfacebw125.jpgGloria Lamson’s love of photography was first ignited by alchemical magic. It began in the dark (room) when she witnessed a photographic image slowly materializing on a previously blank piece of paper, in a tray filled with clear liquid. In high school she learned to develop and print her own black and white 35mm images. For 15 years she spent much of her time in dark-rooms and loved the world she saw through her camera. Her personal vision evolved along with the fine art photographs and handmade books she made. Her work expanded when she began painting, creating sculptures and teaching creative process to adults. To strengthen this work she attended JFK University in California where she received her MFA in Arts and Consciousness. While living in urban San Francisco area, she explored the natural world as her studio along with the idea of conversation as a model for creating artwork. Reconnecting with her photographic roots she documented the process and results of using simple human or natural materials to create temporary installations and ephemeral interactions. Her intention is to facilitate entrance into a deeper relationship to the world within and around us.

 

On A Personal Note:

The first time I saw Glo Lamson was in a photograph. My friend and fellow photographer, Jon Stuart, had taken several photographs of her and the ones that haunted me were the ones that featured her eyes. They seemed to look right through you even from inside a photograph. Since first seeing Glo in photographs I've gotten to meet and spend time with her. All I can say is that her insight is as penetrating as her eyes. Her current work isn't pure photography but kind of a combination of sculpture and photography. However one way she can share her temporary installations and ephemeral interactions with a larger audience is through photography. Glo's work ads an interesting dimension to the Le Fotografie collection, I'm pleased to give more people the opportunity to enjoy her fascinating and often provocative work.
