Lalie Schewadron: Synthesis
August 2-25, 2007
Copley Society of Art

158 Newbury Street
Boston, MA 02116

Lalie Schewadron is an installation artist, combining new and traditional media. Her installations are intended to explore new forms of engagement with our scientific, technological and natural worlds through the development of a digital 'rewrite' of images, and the creation of previously unknown hybridized realties. The installation is created by the building up layers of digital images, acrylic painting, wall drawings, and the projection of the moving image, to create a world of invented life forms, which draws the viewer into questioning the nature of reality, perception, fiction and chance, blurring the distinction between the imaginary and the real.

Schewadron will focus her presentation on 'Synthesis' as well as her recent project 'Hybrids' (London, April 2007).

Schewadron completed her MA in Fine Art at Central St. Martins, University of the Arts, London, having trained at Brandeis University. She was an exhibiting finalist in the U.K. Celeste Painting Prize 2006 interpreting painting in its widest sense, and recently won the Drawing Conclusion '07 competition by ArtSEEN journal. Recent shows include New Art '07, MPG Contemporary Boston, and the Helen Keller International Award, Collins Gallery, Glasgow. Born in Tel-Aviv, she lives and works in Boston and Lausanne.

The Copley Society of Art (Co|So), America's oldest non-profit organization, is committed to the advancement, enjoyment, and promotion of its member artists and the visual arts. The organization, founded in 1879, compromises juried artists who are selected by a credentialed art committee. Co|So provides artists with a gallery for exhibiting and selling their work and a platform for engaging and educating the community.
