Cindy Lisica Gallery presents Deborah G. Nehmad: "Targeted Dissonance" opening reception
The deeply moving artwork of Deborah G. Nehmad brings stunning layers of materials and concepts, revealed through multiple series of an extensive body of work. Her contemporary style embodies a seamless blend of Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism to present mixed media works that engage audiences in rhythmic patterns and designs. The artist’s latest series, on view for the first time, turns to the more traditional craft of needlepoint and the use of QR codes that can be read with cell phones to convey powerful messages to the viewer. The visually enlightening effects of her techniques employed on paper include burning, etching, scraping, scoring, stamping, puncturing, typing, writing, and drawing. Each individual mark or hole provides its own narrative, marking of time, process and presence.
"Targeted Dissonance" is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog with written contributions by David A.M. Goldberg, Georgianna Lagoria de la Torre, and Dr. Cindy Lisica.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through March 11.
