heART of the Matter
Art is why I get up in the Morning...
Layla Love is intentional & passionate - she is engaged in a life long love affair with creativity. Her life's purpose is expression, her belief in evolving grows through our ability to communicate.
Love's goal has always been to amplify connections & innovate fusions - she has had success in doing this, showcasing internationally alongside Picasso, Warhol, and Basquiat. Love works through the camera, the written word & mixed media. Her aim is to inspire resilience & respect for each other & the living world.
Love bridges traditional collecting with NFTS by offering the original artwork as well as a dynamic augmentation of the piece. Through the lenses of legacy and story, Love has worked to bring her images to life through movement and animation. Love paired her work in combining the physical, digital, and animated into one experience- a gift package for the collector. Love's offering gives collectors access to the value offered by NFTs as well as holders of rare, high-quality, fine art. This creates value not only for crypto-natives but also for those who seek to combine the traditional with the cutting-edge.
The 12th issue of As If Magazine features Loves's work from her last Chelsea Gallery
"Layla Love's methodology represents something rare in the venerable medium of photography.
She mixes stuff up. That is to say she can be at once as objective about her subject matter as and committed to it as any member of the secular priesthood of Magnum, she can be as disturbingly intimate as Sally Mann and she can take off into a luminous world of high-tech pictorialism. All of which she does without sacrificing consistency. Mark my words when I tell you that Love's work is of historical importance."
