The artist executes her compositions using a combination of photography, painting and digital manipulation. Trained as a painter at the Munich Academy and influenced by Old Masters such as Goya, Bronzino, Runge, and Velasquez, Ms. Lux works the entire surface of the photographic image in the computer over the course of many weeks. Props and vintage costumes are carefully selected, as are her subjects. >>About Loretta Lux.
