Morning Honey for Beb – Influenced by her time growing up in Louisiana, Julie Ledet creates photographic collage prints, sculptures and installations grounded in southern culture and tradition. Exploring the ritual behavior specific to her native Southern Louisiana, Ledet examines the undeniable allure surrounding its culture, superstitions, and people. Religion, language, and the unique ways of life all converge and are exemplified in the subtle vignettes. Working from these sources is both a comfort and a means for understanding the complexities of the artist’s upbringing. The mystical character “Beb” is the personification of the struggle between living a life of virtue and vice surrounded by the temptation and decadence occurring in everyday life in Southern Louisiana.
