Liliana Bloch Gallery presents Bonny Leibowitz: New Artifacts opening reception
The Liliana Bloch Gallery will be presenting a new exhibition by Dallas based artist Bonny Leibowitz. Leibowitz utilizes hand woven textiles alongside mass produced fabrics addressing concepts surrounding culture, history, preciousness, abandonment and destruction.
In the New Artifacts Series, Leibowitz employs materials and processes freely transitioning between 2-D and 3-D. The unlikely combination; vintage and antique textiles from India, France, Japan and other parts of the world, intertwined with kitschy oil cloth, glossy vinyl and fabrics from second hand shops feels paradoxical in nature, like a historical timeline happening all at once.
Stuffed forms, layers of paint and sewn photography seem to float, hang or flop onto one another becoming monuments to their former selves. The exhibition weaves together a multitude of perceptions both personal and universal surrounding the exquisite and the mundane, the elevated and the collapsed.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 23.
