DESCRIPTION

These new pieces occupy, nay, inhabit their spaces. They are not linear; they are volumetric. Generational form, pregnant/egg-like, iconic of birth, rebirth, solidity, and regrowth; the simple forms are solid almost passive, static.  

A new approach after a long series of linear works reflecting a continual fascination with female figuration.

 

Founded in 1983, as a program of the New York Feminist Art Institute, Ceres is a not-for-profit artist run organization dedicated to the promotion of contemporary women in the arts. The gallery exhibits a broad spectrum of high quality work each year within a community of women artists that includes national and international members.

Ceres serves as a supportive base for a diversity of artistic and political views. We have become a venue for female and male writers, musicians, dancers and storytellers to perform and take risks. We believe that the arts provide an important social service with their power to enhance and enrich the quality and depth of our lives. - Stefany Benson, Director
