Muse

When: Mondays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 7, 2020

The photographer, sculptor, and installation artist team of Natalie Bertotti and Michael Garlington are known for works that give the fluid sense of the real. From fantastical scenes from the artists’ minds’ eyes, they realize their visions with colorful models, grandiose costumes, and atmospheric locales to stage full scenes they then capture in a single straight shot on medium-format film. Their Burning Man installations Totem of Confessions and Photo Chapel have received international acclaim, and their latest body of work, Muse, which coincides with Oakland Museum’s No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man, includes stunning portraits of the actress Susan Sarandon, creating an emotional image that evokes, in the artists’ own words, “the mystery … the wonder, and of course, the horror.”
