BEST ARTIST IN AN EXPERIMENTAL PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW - 2006
Bonny Lhotka Illusions Walker Fine Art
The two-story space at Walker Fine Art was the perfect setting for Bonny Lhotka's digital photo enlargements, which were part of a group effort titled Illusions. Lhotka, who has a substantial exhibition record, is an experimental photo artist who uses novel techniques, such as lenticular photography (different images flip into focus as the vantage point changes), and odd materials, including metal and ultraviolet-cured inks. Lhotka's compositions, jammed with images and drenched in colors, were absolutely beautiful -- especially those of goldfish.
