LIA HALLLORAN’s Photographic Line Drawings Created By Skateboarding With Light


Lia Halloran’s work blurs the boundaries of photography and become self-portraits and drawings as well as records of performances. Light is used to form the drawing line while Halloran skateboards at night through different venues. The resulting images are each a trajectory of the artist’s movements over time. The photographs pair urban environments with lines of light which behave as physical objects or break apart into flurries of abstraction.

The images also have ghost-like connotations, showing action with no trace of a figure and leaving an after-image of where but not of whom. They become memory as well as exaggerations of architecture combined with landscape. The light pollution of the Los Angeles night sky is often heightened by the long exposure time of the camera.
