Nurit Avesar’s dynamic new work is a powerful statement about the delicate fragility of the environment and the way of life as we know it.
Avesar’s process involves sanding and juxtaposing multiple layers. Shana Nys Dambrot explains “her surfaces have the curious visual quality of grave-rubbings, in which content emerges in layers, as long-hidden ideas are excavated before one’s eyes. By embedding wire mesh into the thick pigment, she gives the paintings further dimensionality as objects.”

Born and raised in Israel, Avesar moved to LA in her early twenties. She earned a MASTER OF ART in Studio Art from California State University Northridge. Her recent exhibitions include the Carnegie Museum in Oxnard, a two-woman show at Shoebox Projects, a solo show at the Neutra Institute Museum and Gallery in Silverlake and the Brand Library and Art Gallery in Glendale.


Kristine Schomaker is a new media and performance artist, painter and art historian living and working at the Brewery artist complex in Los Angeles. For over 14 years she has been working with various interdisciplinary art forms including online virtual worlds to explore identity and the hybridization of digital media with the physical world. Whether virtual or physical, the object-based work Kristine creates combines elements of color-based gestural abstraction, animation, pattern and design, neo-Baroque and Populence. Using installation, text, photography, mixed media, video and performance for her ongoing conceptual project My Life as an Avatar, she visualizes a narrative/dialogue with her virtual persona, Gracie Kendal. Kristine then documents her experiences on her blog. In 2012, exploring ideas of community, Kristine turned a local gallery into a modern day creation of Gertrude Stein’s salon of the 1920’s with a live mixed-reality dinner party merging the physical world with the online virtual world. Over the summer she also performed The Bald and the Beautiful in which she had her head shaved as a statement to challenge society’s standards of beauty. Currently, Kristine is working as an Artist-in-Residence through the Linden Endowment for the Arts creating an immersive virtual environment which she is planning to bring into the physical world via sculpture/public art work.
