biography

Luisa Lambri was born in 1969 in Como, Italy. She lives and works in Milan and Los Angeles.

Luisa Lambri’s discrete photographs occupy a unique space between photographic abstraction and the spatial exploration of architecture. They are pared down to the most reductive elements and inspire a transcendental perception of light and space. Her signature style is marked by an emphasis on lines and grids as well as an extreme subtlety of color. Frequently working in series, she isolates details such as corners, doors and windows and different qualities of light to build personal and intimate readings of environments. It is possible to perceive in them references to abstract geometric painting of the early twentieth century, the Light and Space movement of Southern California, Brazilian Neo-concretism, and Minimalism.
