LORENZA PANERO
Spanish | English


Lorenza Panero (Colombian-American, b. 1959), lives and works in both Bogota and New York, and is a leading figure in Latin American contemporary art. She studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, and at Hunter College, where she worked with influential artists George Hofmann and Bob Swain.

It was while studying for her MFA at Hunter that Panero developed her signature technique: luminography. With this method Panero has created numerous series of unique cameraless images that combine staged environments, color and motion, abstractions of landscape, and appropriated images which question the manner in which we perceive reality, construct narratives, and search for identity in experience.

Working in the color darkroom the artist brings elements of varying levels of luminosity and opacity to build layers of information which push the traditional boundaries of the medium. With luminography Panero isolates single instances in time, distilling the emotional truth of imagery that induces the memory of the viewer. In this way she questions both creative methodology and the parameters of photography.
