Mariah Robertson printed her photograph 111
on wide metallic paper that she cut into an irregular shape. The photograph is of a photograph that's been turned on its head, showing a man wearing only sneakers and lying on a beach. Expanses of orange and black color spread out behind the man's image and some faded stones line up to make a curve to his right. These elements sound disconnected, but the way the image buckles and pulls forward off the wall makes them feel like part of one powerful body. Robertson's print and a number of other physical photographic images hang from the walls and ceilings of M+B as part of the gallery's "Photography Sculpture Figure" exhibition. 612 N. Almont Drive, W. Hlywd.; through Oct. 27. (310) 550-0050, mbart.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 15. Continues through Oct. 27, 2012
