[Losett]2 Art Collective
From environmental to political, from satirical to poetic, and from trivial to profound art by [Losett]2 zooms in on contemporary urban life in America. Several distinct portfolios of Urban Panels make up the first major body of work by this artistic duo. These square reliefs, designed for a wide variety of installations, investigate the most mundane of urban activities—walking—and the most ubiquitous of city vistas—sidewalks—while commenting on much larger contemporary issues.
For Alex Losett Urban Panels present a radical break from her previous work. An accomplished visual artist, she has exhibited paintings, drawings and illustrations internationally, from the United States to Canada, Russia, Japan and Australia before expanding her artistic explorations to sculptural installation work.
As an architect, Sam Losett handled conceptual design on projects such as the Please Touch Museum, Penn’s Landing Maintenance and Information Center, and Philadelphia School District Headquarters. Sam has always made use of his art training, creating award winning architectural sketches and drawings.
The duo’s collaborations began with the Parktowne Place Skyline Proposal and Alex’s installations at the Art Factory and developed into a permanent artistic partnership. At the moment [Losett]2 is continuing to grow and develop the Urban Panels series.
Urban Panels will be followed by Urban Scrolls, reinterpreting the Panels’ language for flexible surfaces flowing from vertical to horizontal exhibition planes. Square Roots and Love Park will investigate how urban flora conforms to industrial and intellectual grids. All series will connect within a broad, ambitious and original artistic message focused on contemporary urban issues.
