Cindy Lisica Gallery is pleased to present the compelling new works of Jan Rattia in his latest solo exhibition of photography, Landings. With a diverse and elegant series of striking figurative subjects and provocative and poignant objects, Rattia explores the ongoing political crisis in his native country of Venezuela, immigrant identity, and the fluid concept of home and place in current times. The thought process behind the work is as robust as the impeccable quality of its presentation. While Rattia’s compositional prowess is undoubtedly on display, the moving interactions of the characters (whether human models or inanimate objects) come to fruition in each scene. The photographs pull the viewer in and hint at personal and social narratives. Simultaneously, they open the possibilities of that which is unexplained or missing, before and after. By devising inventive configurations of symbolic objects, such as a cuatro (a South American four-string guitar), an orchid (Venezuela’s national flower), or a pomegranate, for example, alongside a purposeful selection of people as subjects, Landings provides multiple sensations, from conflict and mortality to beauty and memory.
