> DESCRIPTION

Lora Schlesinger Gallery presents The Color of Light, a new series of elegant and ethereal metal works by New York artist Miya Ando. This will be the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. The show opens December 10, 2011 and is on view through January 14, 2012.

Miya Ando uses steel and aluminum plates with luminous mirror-like surfaces as blank canvases, reworking each surface to manipulate and enhance the natural and physical properties of metal. She uses metal finishing techniques to create quiet, minimal, meditative environments that transcend the physical properties of the metal into metaphysical landscapes.
The new body of work is created using a unique hand-dyed method new to the artist. Each plate is hand dipped into a bath of water and dye, resulting in a watercolor effect that is permanently absorbed by the material. Each piece is a practice of meditation, combining the mind and body on a singular task in hope of creating spiritual and meditative fields that come from a place of sincerity and compassion.
