EXHIBIT DATES: 16 April - 30 May
OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, 16 April, 6 – 8 pm
d berman gallery is pleased to present new work by Austin artist Lauren Levy. The new textile and button-based work is a fitting and exciting progression from her well-known sculptures. Buttons remain her major medium; however, they have now become a tool for drawing objects onto fabric. The new works combine two-dimensional and three-dimensional elements into one.
Lauren Levy says of this new work: “This body of work represents adaptation and change. The idea that change can occur slowly at first and then in an instant be different is interesting. This idea is embodied in the motif of the Shiva Nataraj, the form of the Hindu God who performs his dance at the moment of the universe's destruction and in the same moment, the next world's beginning. The linear quality of time is one that is false but it does lie behind the motif of the flow of water as a metaphor for the passing of time. My developing interest in a two dimensional way of working will necessitate some time to let this happen naturally, with intuition being the driving force of innovation. I don't yet know if this departure from three dimensional work is temporary or permanent, but I must embrace it and proceed.”
