Contemporary Art New York: Maya Bloch "Feels Like Home" @ Thierry Goldberg Gallery, New York
(Drivebycuriosity) - The big autumn auctions of contemporary art in New York are over. But life goes on - even for contemporary art. Yesterday I visited an opening reception @ Thierry Goldberg Gallery on 103 Norfolk Street in New York´s Lower East Side, where you can see works of less known and ascending artists (thierry).
They show paintings by Maya Bloch: "Feels like Home" (through December 21, 2014 bloch). The artist, who is born 1978, lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel.
It was fun to be there. I enjoyed the sensitivity of Bloch´s works and her playful use of colors and shapes. Even the black and white works are elegant and stylish.
The painting above the 2nd paragraph is called "Big Flowers" (acylic on canvas); most of the other paintings are untitled and graphite, ink and color pencil on canvas.
Sunday evening I also was at another show: The gallery James Fuentes at 55 Delancey Street (also Lower East Side) had an opening reception for works by Noam Rappapor (through December 21, 2014 james).
Rappapor´s geometrical shapes deliver a sharp contrast to the works by Bloch. Visiting both shows created a nice blend of artistic impressions.
