Dorit Feldman | Reflective Geophilosophy Curated by J. Susan Isaacs in conjunction with Visions of Place: Complex Geographies in Contemporary Israeli Art at Towson University
WHEN: February 12 - March 20, 2016; Opening Reception | Saturday February 20, 6-9pm. Informal Curatorial Talk with J. Susan Isaacs during the reception at 7:30pm
About the Exhibition The works in this exhibition were created by Israeli artist Dorit Feldman, a native and current resident of Tel Aviv. As a conceptual artist, her works emphasize the construction of unity from multiplicity. Feldman has presented over 30 solo exhibitions and participated in hundreds of group exhibitions in leading galleries and museums throughout Israel, Europe, and the U.S. and her work is in a number of public collections. Combining photographic images of archaeological, historical, and geographical sites, with quotations from ancient maps, Feldman produces elegant paintings and collages that address how time and place are interconnected.
Reflective Geophilosophy is related to a larger show on view February 5-April 3, at the Center for the Arts Gallery, Towson University, entitled Visions of Place: Complex Geographies in Contemporary Israeli Art. Feldman has two works included in that exhibition, which comprises 52 works by 36 Israeli artists.
All works from the series Reflective Geophilosophy are from the collection of the artist and are for sale.
