Urban Forest, a Meditative Art Exploration Into Nature
March 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On Friday, March 8th from 7 to 9 pm, please join us for the opening of Urban Forest, an art exhibit that is the result of a collaboration between Los Angeles based artists Rachel X Hobreigh and Marcus Maria Jung.
The exhibition features painting, sculpture, and photography, inviting the audience into an experience that is both vibrant and meditative, guiding viewers deeper into the realms of the natural world. Both Hobreigh and Jung are interested in exploring and opening gateways into nature through their works in this exhibition.
Urban Forest is an invitation to dive into nature and experience the spirit and souls of trees in a unique way. This co-creation with nature is made visible through the two artists’ works, which are beautifully paired into a contrasting yet energetic and aesthetic experience. The artist’s works share an intimate, sensory and emotive experience, even though their styles, materials, and techniques are uniquely different.
On view until March 20th.
About the Artists
Rachel X Hobreigh is an international artist – she has exhibited in Paris, France, Jena, Germany, as well as the United States. Hobreigh’s work focuses on depicting the feminine in nature and capturing moments in time. Hobreigh’s latest work invites the viewer to experience paintings of female forms in nature. Her use of color, composition and choice of scale is vibrant, dynamic and alive, while exploring themes of nature mythologies and feminine identity.
Marcus Maria Jung’s work has been shown in art exhibitions, installations, and performances in both Europe and the United States. In his art he is exploring themes such as transience, environmental crisis, and a new eco-mythology that is emerging at this time. Jung’s work embodies the ancient and sacred relationship between the human spirit and the natural world. He is part of a new wave of artists and creatives dedicated to healing the planet through artistic practices.
