On The Horizon
Featuring the Artwork of Etty Yaniv
Charleston Height Arts Center Gallery | Oct. 4-Jan. 5, 2019
In her recent installation works, Yaniv draws on patterns from nature and images from daily life, altogether forming hybrid landscapes that blur the line between the real and the imagined, the organic and the artificial, the chaotic and the orderly. The multiple layers of repurposed materials reflect her preoccupation with ephemeral materials—recycled, torn, stacked, manipulated—alluding to obsolescence, ecology, and transience.
Her process begins by integrating discarded materials, such as hundreds of torn-paper and cut-plastic pieces, which normally do not go together, but throughout this process, transform and create new meanings. Assembling these two-dimensional fragments into three-dimensional compositions involves building and taking off, covering and uncovering, marking fresh paper and scavenging recycled material, which includes scraps of her drawings, ink marks and fragments of photos from my daily experiences. Like coded messages or excavated memories, the accumulated fragments in each layer document a particular moment in time and present new clues. Only up-close viewers may discover the hidden content underneath<.
