Lorraine Albert’s artist bio nods at the inspiration she pulls from Keith Haring, in addition to the influence of the international street art she saw during her travels in North America, Australia, Asia, and Europe. Yet, in looking at Albert’s work, it’s clear that what inspires her is not necessarily the visual codes of these sources, but more so a shared sense of movement—the drive to create in unlikely places.
On Wednesday, March 7, Albert launches an exhibition at Casa del Popolo entitled BALANCE. The exhibit features a selection of photographs, paintings, and custom skateboard decks. Check out Albert’s website to see how she meshes elegant archaic images with the street culture aesthetic of skateboards. Sepia-toned pictures befitting of magic lantern glass slides adorn the wooden undersides of various decks.
While Albert’s work been shown everywhere from Australia to Austria, and her design wizardry was published in Rockport’s 2010 Best Business Card Design, Vol. 9, it’s nice to have her back on home turf. If you can’t make Wednesday’s vernissage, fear not, BALANCE is a month-long show.
Vernissage: Wednesday, March 7 at 6 p.m
Casa del Popolo
