“Her subjects, with gazes ambiguously empty yet psychologically activated, assume formal poses and appear in calculated garb and hairstyles. Employing photography, painting, and computer manipulation, Lux alters the images, extracting extraneous details, distorting proportions, and setting the children against mediated backgrounds that exist somewhere between Old Master paintings and studio-portrait backdrops.”
Lux’s work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the globe and is included in the collections of major galleries and museums including: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, San Francisco MoMA, National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan, Maison Europeenne de la Photographie, Paris, Israel Museum, Jerusalem, J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and others. In 2005 she received the Infinity Award for Art from The International Center of Photography in New York.
