Glass Breakfast: Letitia Quesenberry
Letitia Quesenberry uses color lenses, filters, shadow and light as a means of exploring vision’s ambiguities. Her artistic concerns involve the cultivation of an aesthetic inscrutability, a type of visual veiling to destabilize perception. Through drawing, painting, photography, installation and text she accentuates nuance, combining semitransparent materials like color correction film, resin, beeswax and sanded plexiglass with reflective or opaque materials like graphite, spray paint, plaster, mirrors, coal slag and mica dust. Through the play of materials, surfaces, and technologies, Quesenberry surveys the boundaries of visual perception, memory’s effect on present experience and how these relate to ideas of certainty. She received a BFA from the University of Cincinnati and lives in Louisville KY, where filmmaker Ian Carstens sat down with her in her studio.
