I feel very connected to the subjects that I am portraying and what they have to say about what has happened in their worlds that has brought them up to this point; each painting will tell you some of the story of their lives.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 1, 2010
Lore Eckelberry's paintings were part of an exhibition of international artists that brought together painted, sculptural and textile works in a show curated by the renowned Lydia Takashita at the LA Artcore gallery. The exhibition had a wide span of significant contemporary work and featured artistic expression from Japan and Korea as well as the United States.
Lore Eckelberry was one of the artists interviewed by Gorge Elias, producer of the Hollywood TV show 'Hablemos de Cine'. Lore spoke about her painting 'Hidden Camera' which portrays the suppression of art and the destruction of artworks during the Chinese Cultural Revolution and how the Communist philosophy has destroyed spontaneity of creation. The model that Lore painted was the perfect fit for this subject because he was originally an artist from Communist Cuba that had to escape the country in order to be able to express himself as an artist. It is called 'Hidden Camera' because in many Communist countries it is denied the fact that creativity is suppressed. The artwork's background illustrates the humiliation that artists went though during the Cultural Revolution and the model is portrayed photographing in order to show to the world what actually happened.
Alongside this painting, Lore shows the opposite idea in the work 'Going Free' which is of another photographer who is allowed to express herself freely in any way she wants. Another of Lore's paintings in the show, 'I can see' bears witness to the dichotomy of both worlds.
