(Los Angeles, California) – It is no surprise that in 2016, on the five-hundredth-year anniversary of one of the Northern Renaissance’s greatest painters Hieronymus Bosch’s death, tens of thousands of visitors, fans, and scholars alike flocked from all corners of the globe to the small, southern Netherlandish city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Here they were to take part in the city-sanctioned celebration of “its most famous son”. The city which had culled all of the artist’s known works into one exhibit, and produced a wide array of programming, brought attention to the region’s unmistakable historical style and Bosch’s lasting impact on artists from the Surrealists to 1970’s psychedelic cartoonists.  

 

Among those taking in the festivities was Los Angeles photographer Lori Pond, who became enthralled by Bosch as a teenager. Leading up to her visit, Pond spent the better part of 2016 restaging details of figures in Bosch’s work The Garden of Earthly Delights. Captivated both by the artist’s fantastical visualizations and inscrutably ambiguous displays of human drama, the exhibit was an occasion to go to the source. “There is so little known about him –what he believed in, what he thought, who he was.” What transpired was the “…realization that his work is all a morality play; his works address concepts of good and evil what happens to humans when they sin.” 

 

Upon returning, Pond met her process with renewed vigor as she gathered materials, friends, props, and prosthetics. Having studied the originals closely proved pivotal in what are works of equal parts remixing the past into the present and paying homage to an artist whose unbridled imagination became realized through painstaking craft. Among Pond’s re-constructions, the opening reception event will feature a live costumed model in character playing to the resonance of Bosch’s fanfare. 

 

Lori Pond received her Bachelor of Science and Spanish from Indian University, a Master of Arts Degree in Broadcast Journalism at USC. She worked as a graphic designer and live graphics operator for televised events, has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationally and internationally. Her work is in the collections of the Center for Fine Art Photography in Ft. Collins, Colorado, The Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock, and Morgan Stanley headquarters in New York and San Francisco. Her Bosch series has been featured in online blogs from Adobe Create to Mental Floss and was featured in Musee Magazine.
