“THROUGH MY LENS” Recap- Tel Aviv 2012

12 Sep

My trip to Israel this summer was eye opening and enlightening. I discovered things about my family history that I have been searching for. I found out my dad’s side of the family migrated to Israel from Cordoba, Spain during the Spanish Inquisition. I met some family members who I havent been connected to in over 15 years and I visited places my parents lived and worked in Tel Aviv.  I decided to use this new information I gathered  in my second solo exhibition at Bazel Gallery. One spot I was particularly inspired by was a place near Rehov Hamasger where my dad worked in the 50’s. Currently this place is facing demolition and it once was the heart of the auto industry. My dad worked there for many years before migrating to New York. I was enamored by the tin shacks and the semi demolished walls that possessed so much character and history. I collected bits and pieces of the walls that were being torn down. After returning to this location numerous times I came across this wall- the very last wall standing in this area. I felt like I was collecting pieces of my dad’s history that were about to disappear forever. The significance of this place and remaining wall was included in my installation at the gallery. It is a mixture of  pieces I collected from this site as well as old frames I found at markets and antique frame shops. check out the pics below.

“PURPLE” October 19, 2012 from 6-9pm at Causey Contemporary Gallery

4 Sep
Eleven Female Artists take over Causey Contemporary Gallery in an exhibition exploring the color Purple
 
August 2012, Brooklyn, NY — This autumn, eleven female contemporary artists will explore Purple  as a color, word and psychological context in a freestyle exhibition where medium, formal strategies and process intersect to create original content.
 
Purple will be on view at Causey Contemporary Gallery, 92 Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, from October 19 – November 18, 2012, with an opening reception from 6pm – 9pm on Friday, October 19th. This exhibition is produced by YOUNITY, an international collective of urban female visual artists, designers and craftswomen. The collective collaborates on creative projects, resource networks, mentoring of youth, community building, and the production of art exhibitions that promote women in the arts.
 
Curated by Diana McClure and YOUNITY co-founder Alice Mizrachi, this exhibition features a group of internationally recognizable street, mural, urban and contemporary artists from across the United States and abroad including: Alice Mizrachi, Diana McClure, Gilf!, Lady Pink, Lichiban, Miss Van, Olek, Priscila De Carvalho, Queen Andrea, Ritzy Periwinkle, and Sofia Maldonado.
 
From electric purple, Tyrian purple and Han purple, to purple prose, purple patches and human color psychology, the color purple has been tapped by the musician Prince, the author Alice Walker, the French art publication Purple Journal, and the ancient world, to convey a certain psychological vibration, spiritual energy or visual message.  In this exhibition, each artists’ interpretation of purple aims to unlock new readings on the visceral, intellectual, conceptual, spiritual and pleasurable aspects of the color purple.
