Sylvia Naimark at Nancy Margolis Gallery
Swedish artist Sylvia Naimark will be a part of the exhibition "FIGURATION Inside/Out" at Nancy Margolis Gallery between November 5 and December 19. The opening reception will take place on Thursday, November 5, 6-8 pm.
The group show FIGURATION Inside/Out examines portraiture through the depiction of the body, mind, and spirit. The paintings in the exhibition were selected for their engaging personal expression, and styles. Their genre, unalike and varied, runs from realism, abstraction, narration, symbolism, patterning, and adornment.
Sylvia Naimark's paintings search to describe the emotions trapped in-between a collective consciousness and the personal self. They reflect everything that feels inevitable, something implicit that she can't let go of and needs to be visualized. There is no predisposed program. The initial idea is rarely presented in the outcome and if so, it has been filtered through a tumultuous untraceable maze. Collected items, drawings, documents and photos, can all be distilled down into an integral part of Naimark's painting process.
FIGURATION Inside/Out is a group exhibition with artists Heidi Howard, Meghan Howland, and Aubrey Levinthal.
