Where? Erie Street Gallery – 266 E Erie St Milwaukee, WI

The details… “Deviation” showcases the collaborative efforts of Midwest photo-based artists Andrea Payne and Georgia Lloyd. The two attended school together at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and became familiar with each others’ work through their four years studying as Photography majors.The finished pieces contain elements from both artists. In singular work, Payne’s concepts were focused heavily on human psychology and internal conflict; Lloyd’s work centered around life cycles and symbolism. The combination of these interests morphed into somber works focused on the juxtaposition of the human & natural along with the tranquil & tense.
