Nava Gidanian-Kagan


Curated by Matthew Gosser

March 3 - May 3, 2019

A Solo show by Nava Gidanian-Kagan.

“The core subject of my work is the nature of impermanence and its manifestation in our daily life. Coming from an Iranian family, moving from Israel, where life and death are a daily struggle; I knowthat life is precious. “Written in Skin” series is painted in layers of wax and oil, emulating a memory of the body and its fragility. Abstracted within the figure; I am stretching the limits between what is seen and what can be represented, confronting mortality and vulnerability. The goal of my work is to bring these tender moments to the front of the stage; from my personal view to a universal one and transform them into a meaningful experience, that embraces all shades of life.” Nava Gidanian-Kagan
