Sharon Lockhart

I happened upon Sharon Lockhart’s work at The Broad museum in Los Angeles. As I gazed at the four framed prints hanging on the walls, I realized I was looking at more than photographs. Lockhart had captured Duane Hanson’s hyper-realistic sculptures at four different angles. Three of the figures remain unchanged, while the other two are real people, museum workers installing the artwork. After seeing these images, I was struck by the perception and appropriation of mysterious truth.
