Gorgeous natural formations and environments find their way into the work of Lia Halloran. Her painterly technique gives a personal touch to typically geometric, scientific subjects, seen here in a delicate ink drawing of crystal forms. Evidence of the artist’s hand transforms the beauty of these items into emotive, even psychological, tableau. Halloran lives and works in Los Angeles. Her work is in a number of public collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York. Group exhibitions include Superficiality and Superexcresence at Ben Maltz Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design, Los Angeles, and Ultrasonic International III at Mark Moore Gallery, Santa Monica. She is a 2001 MFA graduate of the Yale University School of Art.
