Accra Shepp: Folium Pictum

1206 Maple Ave, 2nd floor #212, Los Angeles, CA 90018
Jan 09, 11 PM - 9 PM — ends Mar 06, 2021
Von Lintel Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition by artist Accra Shepp.

Accra Shepp has developed a unique process in his photography-based practice over the years, a captivating transformation of preserved tobacco and certain mammoth indigenous leaves into photoreactive materials. Onto these tanned, veined, physically huge but texturally fragile surfaces, Shepp enacts photographic portraits of the laborers who work these crops and farmlands. By grafting their images in such a physically integrated way, the image seems to emerge from within the leaf.
