EXHIBITION WILL BE UP THROUGH TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 2011
SKIN DEEP - The Loft at Liz’s upcoming exhibition attempts to explore the relationship between Blacks and Whites. This art exhibition, bringing the voices of both races to dialog, is the path to understanding. The artists, Monique Birault, Zeal Harris, Ted Meyer, Jackie Nach, Miles Regis, Franceska Schifrin, Garth Trinidad, and Richard Turner, reveal their voice through their works.
Through her drawings and paintings, Zeal Harris avoids making art about racism, yet her micro-narratives offer socio-political commentary about a range of related issues. The warmth Ted Meyer expresses in his paintings, suggests a simple solution to racial conflict through interracial relationships. Jackie Nach fled her native country Lithuania because of religious persecution only to immigrate to the land of apartheid, South Africa. Jackie integrates the soil of her adopted land into her mixed media paintings. The poignant paintings of Miles Regis will shed light on our equality. The Human Expressionistic paintings of Franceska Schifrin strive for the truth, not for the facts. Before his flourishing career as a radio personality, Garth Trinidad was a student at the prestigious Otis College of Art and Design. After a ten-year hiatus from art, he makes his debut with a painting expressly created for Skin Deep. Richard Turner’s paintings say “Take Responsibility”. Jewelry designer Monique Birault exemplifies harmony through juxtapositions between the two colors in her pieces made exclusively for Skin Deep.
