Mercy Seat Gallery 

Exquisite Creatures is a characteristically striking exhibit at the Mercy Seat Gallery (206 East 16th Street, 816-421-4833), a collection of almost painterly photographs by area artist Emily Louise Lodigensky. Timeless and immaculately composed, these pieces render ambiguity and near-abstraction through the most representational of media, their effects accomplished through digital-compositing techniques. "I generally keep a databank — libraries of interesting reflections or anything that lends itself to a kind of abstract visual," Lodigensky says. "And aesthetically, I select the background that matches or enhances the figures and what they're doing. These two elements kind of form this other world, this other thing. My goal is basically that you won't think that it's digital or unreal. I want it to be very believable."
