Opening February 6th, 2015
99 Cent Plus is pleased to present “HOW TO ABANDON A BURNING HOUSE WITHOUT PANICKING”, Charlotte Patterson’s first solo exhibition. These process based photographs explore the relativity of memory during human experiences. Sourcing from National Geographic magazines between the years of 1962-1969, Charlotte paints them with a solvent that removes ink and photographs the images as it works. These process based pieces play with the ability to control one’s sense of memory and nostalgia.
Charlotte Patterson (b. 1990) is a Los Angeles based artist who received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 2012 with a concentration on Photography. Her work has a photographic foundation that often expands on the medium’s principles of time and representation through experimentation.
