Carrie Yury
at Sam Lee Gallery, Chinatown, Los Angeles, California
Recommendation by Jeannie R. Lee

Carrie Yury, "Untitled (Respect Your Mother)," 2006, pigment prints on Sintra.

For all the exposed skin we see in Carrie Yury’s current photography, one might expect to see some tits and ass, but nothing gives. Each portrait--for although we never see a face, these are clearly portraits and quitely intimate ones at that--is a diptych: two photographs of the same body are spliced together to create a landscape of flesh, but the heads are always turned away. While sometimes the two halves fashion a tantalizingly long, naked torso, the bottom half is always wearing panties. No question, you will wonder who these women are and how they live. These investigations into the female “nude” reveal nothing, but promise much.
