Lot84, in collaboration with Kiesendahl+Calhoun Fine Art, Ltd. is presenting photographer Simo Neri's framed limited edition color prints The photos will be on display at Lot 84 in Mt. Kisco beginning September 8th thru Dec..6th . Born in Rome and now living in Paris, Simo Neri photographs fragments of flower petals, bamboo, water reeds, bark, book bindings and other objects from the natural and constructed world . She reassembles them in a kaleidoscopic sequence that forces us to reinterpret familiar objects while sharpening our perception. In reconstructing abstracted parts we delight in the puzzle while simultaneously meditating on their sequential beauty.

Simo Neri combines the stillness of close-up photography with the sequencing of cinema and effectively reveals the elusive mutability of nature. Simo's mosaics are decidedly abstract, and our imagination must reconstruct the idea of the whole from archetypes linked to personal experience.

Neri has exhibited in Beacon, NY in 2005 with Kiesendahl+Calhoun Fine Art, at the Cooper Hewitt in New York, and in Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco, Mexico, Los Angeles and at the Biennale of Venice. Installations of her photo curtains have been at the Alliance Francaise, the Minstry of Economics and Industry, at the World Trade Center of Osaka, Japan, among other locations. After living in California for fifteen years, Neri settled in France with her family. The artist's work is a product of her studies in Fine Arts, Philosophy and Psychology.
