Liliana Bloch Gallery says
The Liliana Bloch Gallery is proud to present a new exhibition by Dallas based artist Bonny Leibowitz.

Bonny Leibowitz utilizes hand woven textiles alongside mass produced fabrics addressing concepts surrounding culture, history, preciousness, abandonment and destruction.

In the "New Artifacts" Series, Leibowitz employs materials and processes freely transitioning between 2-D and 3-D. The unlikely combination; vintage and antique textiles from India, France, Japan and other parts of the world, intertwined with kitschy oil cloth, glossy vinyl and fabrics from second hand shops feels paradoxical in nature, like a historical timeline happening all at once.

Stuffed forms, layers of paint and sewn photography seem to float, hang or flop onto one another becoming monuments to their former selves. The exhibition weaves together a multitude of perceptions both personal and universal surrounding the exquisite and the mundane, the elevated and the collapsed.

Bonny Leibowitz attended Temple University's Tyler College of Art in Philadelphia, PA. and has been the subject of numerous interviews and reviews. She had a solo exhibition at The Museum of Art, Midwestern State University and has participated in museum group exhibitions at the Cape Cod Museum of Art and the Arlington Museum of Art. She has had solo exhibitions throughout the United States, from Dallas, Texas to Santa Fe, New Mexico, to Laguna Beach, California and group exhibitions in Matera, Italy, Akko, Israel, Brooklyn, New York, Baltimore, Maryland, and Art Basel Satellite Art Fair, Miami Beach, Florida.

Free and open to the public.
