press release

Elad Lassry Tel Aviv-born, Los Angeles-based Elad Lassry's intimately framed photographs slip effortlessly between genres and iconographies, capturing plastic still-lives, uncanny publicity portraits, collages, animals, and landscapes. Thoroughly familiar and blank at the same time, his images move beyond the simple category of "photography" and instead ask us to revisit the perceptual experience of a picture. Often sliding between stillness and movement, the works possess a seductive, if slippery, hold on our vision. For Lassry's first major museum monograph in the United States, Sum of Limited Views combines over thirty photographs, including several new works, with a survey of his 16mm films, spotlighting the artist's capacity to create the "unstill" picture.
