Contested

Opening reception: Wednesday October 18th, 7 pm to 9 pm

Exhibition: October 17 to 28, 2017

Tuesday to Saturday 3:30pm to 7:30pm

We are thrilled to present Contested, a solo exhibition featuring the artworks of Liora Salter.

“The ordinary can be provoking and visually exciting: a crush of backpacks on the university–bound bus, a tangle of wires found at any European train station, the pipes and drains in the basements of old buildings, even a pile of string or dishes in the sink or a mop and pail shoved into a cupboard.  I want to challenge the commonplace wisdom that art is supposed to lift us out of the mundane. I want instead to transform how we see the mundane, to make myself and others see differently. I don’t do big and bold; I aim for quiet, detailed and thought-provoking. Even my paintings are essentially drawings in disguise.

Where I go for the edge is in pushing the limits of materials:  inventing new kinds of surfaces, stretching dimensionality in traditionally two dimensional artwork, and challenging the limitations of traditional methods.  The materials I use are those found readily – plexi-glass, gels, paints, pencil, wires, as well as paint.  I am continually experimenting with them; this is a central element of my work. Process creates its own meanings.

And yes, and in contradistinction with much contemporary art, I believe that eloquence and elegance (call it aesthetics) still matter.  In my work, beauty is not a dirty word, and politics are but an undercurrent.” Liora Salter

Opening Reception: November 1st from 7pm to 9pm

Mojgan Rahiminejad (Mojy) is a Visual Artist and Graphic designer born in 1966 in Tehran. Her artistic career started early on. She successfully presented  two art exhibitions in her home city before completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic design from the Azad University of Tehran (Faculty of Arts and Architecture). Ever since graduating, she has been working as a professional graphic designer and pursuing her other passions painting and drawing in her free time. Currently Mojy’s work focusses on drawing and the glow of layers in human’s being throughout life.

 

“Our lives comprise of different layers of energy, which overlay on top of each other through the passage of time. These layers make our life.

Instead of eliminating and overseeing the dirty layers, let’s look at the beautiful texture they create together in composition.

Let’s search for the beauty in the bigger picture!” Mojy
