Susan Hoeltzel, Beatrice Lebreton and Jennifer Pliego: Women's Voices
On exhibit from March 10 to April 7, 2011
In celebration of Women's History Month, The Grady Alexis gallery is pleased to present Women's Voices, an exhibition of works by Susan Hoeltzel, Beatrice Lebreton and J. Maya Luz; curated by Andrea Arroyo.
Beatrice Lebreton is a French-born painter whose work has been exhibited extensively. She presents her series "Artisans from Congo," in which she uses old Liebig trading cards produced from 1872 to 1975. The artist appropriates and recontextualizes these iconic images, adding patterns and textures inspired in traditional designs from the Congo.
Susan Hoeltzel's work explores the natural environment -plants and landscapes- finding imagery by direct observation or by processing images found in the media. She has exhibited in the United States and Europe and her work has been written about in publications ranging from Art News and Art in America to The New York Times and Washington Post.
J. Maya Luz presents a selection from Elder Flowers, a series of color prints of flowers past the normal span of life usually referred to as its prime, challenging the traditional notion of beauty. J. Maya Luz is an Artist-In-Residence at El Taller Latino Americano. She has photographed many of the notable musicians and artists that have performed and exhibited there. She has exhibited in New York and abroad.
