Opening Exhibition with Artist Liza Philosof at the Helms Design Center
November 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
On Thursday, November 15th from 7 to 10 pm, please join us for the opening event of L A Y E R S, the first solo exhibition by Liza Philosof to take place in Los Angeles.
L A Y E R S contains paintings made by Philosof between 2015 and 2018, along with a video made last year during an art residence on Pico Island. One of the major inspiration sources for the artist was her visit to Pico Island and being surrounded by 3 elements: water, basalt stone, and plants. Some paintings are drawn with markers on canvas, with most of the paintings produced with acrylics during the summer of 2018.
“I see my paintings as a visual extension of my emotional journey in life. A reflection of the struggles and challenges we all have. Climbing a mountain or crossing an ocean are just metaphors of deep tectonic movement happening in our souls. Nature has endless layers, as we have. In paintings, I try to embrace observing nature with an interpretation of what our inner world looks like. I feel that one of my secret missions is to continue to see life in color.”
