  • Description
    American, b. 1946, Santa Monica, California, based in Santa Monica, California

    Light and Space artist Lita Albuquerque has been investigating our place in the universe through installations, environmental works, paintings, and sculpture throughout her critically acclaimed career. She emerged in the 1970s, a student of Robert Irwin’s. In her early works, she marked the California desert with colored pigment, mapping both the earthly and celestial terrain, a practice she has since brought to sites worldwide. Among her best-known projects is Sol Star (1996), for which she marked the desert south of the Great Pyramids of Giza with blue circles, each one associated with a star. Albuquerque’s work is centered upon scale, and our smallness in an infinite cosmos. “I was interested in that impossibility of vision,” she explains, “being able to perceive only what is around us, yet aware that […] what we are perceiving is only part of a much larger vision.”
