The Lab is pleased to present Klea McKenna's "Volcano Watchers". Showcasing McKenna's exploration of experimental photography techniques, "Volcano Watchers" takes as subject the artist's off-the-grid childhood on the rural slopes of Mauna Loa, Hawaii. Her large-format color and black-and-white photograms make explicit use of natural materials (rain, fire, leaves, and light) to tell both a story of place and of photographic chemistry. Hovering between abstraction and the purest kind of representation, McKenna uses her work to investigate the feeling of a place through its imprints, both physical and mental.
Klea McKenna is an artist and photographer based in San Francisco, CA. In addition to her own art practice, she is co-founder and photographer at In The Make, an online arts journal of studio visits with West Coast artists.
