University of Oregon Department of Art – Visiting Artist Lecture Series, John Divola: “The landscape and things in the way.”

John Divola is a contemporary visual artist who works in photography, describing himself as exploring the landscape by looking for the edge between the abstract and the specific. Although the physical subjects that Divola photographs range from buildings to landscapes to objects in the studio, his concerns are conceptual: they challenge the boundaries between fiction and reality, as well as the limitations of art to describe life. Divola is from Southern California, and his imagery often reflects that locale by including urban Los Angeles or the nearby ocean, mountains, and desert. He currently lives and works in Riverside, CA. Divola has taught photography and art at numerous institutions including California Institute of the Arts (1978-1988), and since 1988 he has been a Professor of Art at the University of California, Riverside.
