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.
