Lisa Oppenheim’s newest body of work is a series of unique silver-toned photograms titled 4:3:2. Created for her recent solo exhibition at the gallery’s Los Angeles location, the artist used archival image sources and related material filters to explore the impact of celluloid roll film on the film and photographic industries. Featuring no image, these tiled photograms are the result of an experimental process of varied exposure to light and chemical wash. Each work features subtle variations of texture and tone with a metallic sheen, making oblique reference to the “silver screen” which continues to define the way we think of cinema, far into the digital age. As referenced in the series’ title, the proportions of the individual panels and overall dimensions of each work conform to the aspect ratio of early still images and silent motion picture film.
