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
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.
