NAVA WAXMAN – P E R S O N I F I C A T I O N S
JULY 25 – SEPTEMBER 1, 2013
Reception: 6 – 9 pm, Thursday, July 25, 2013
Join us at the opening reception of this invitational solo show by Nava Waxman. Her recent works are deeply intimate. Her simultaneous paintings, sculptural and drawing processes feed a creative cycle through which objects become animated, even humanized. Recalling Daphne’s metamorphosis in Greek myth, they harness the phenomena of transformation and personification to challenge borders of privacy.
Both her earlier and present works contain recurring elements such as fine lines, organic details, circular patterns and calligraphy. This has become her iconography. In Personifications Waxman continues to explore abstract mythology, creating bridges between the natural world and the fantastical. Personifications is Nava’s 7th solo exhibit in Canada.
