To create her work, Lia Halloran lays ink on drafting film and then responds to its natural flow and spread, allowing the properties of the ink’s movement to contribute to the completed piece. The result is a vibrant image that balances the loose, fluid qualities of the ink with the jagged, geometric form of the crystals, adding an expressionistic touch to an analytical work. Halloran lives and works in Los Angeles, and her work is in a number of public collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York. She is a 2001 MFA graduate of the Yale University School of Art. Solo exhibitions have been held at venues in New York, Miami, Boston and Los Angeles, and Halloran was included in the group exhibition Haunted: Contemporary Photography / Video / Performance at the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao.
