DESCRIPTION

AVRAM EISEN GALLERY presents:

"BODY LANGUAGE: works by Laura Olear, Krista Monahan, and Yuriy Maltsev"

Our December group show features an eclectic mix of pieces from three artists with our concentration on figural display and distortion. Maltsev's work focuses on movement and dance, Monahan mixes images of human forms and animals metaphorically together, and Olear's fascinating personal expression of "medical" imagery displaces such grotesque elements as anorexia and obesity through bright colorful, flowing lines and abstract fragmentation. The juxtaposition of these artists' works bring into question the position of the body as a means of communication in our society. 

OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY DECEMBER 5TH, 5-9PM
