Visual Pleasures and Photographic Treasures at Pace, Palo Alto
Check out multimedia artist Michal Rovner…
Flitting between Israel and NYC, artist Michal Rovner makes mesmerizing multimedia montages, images and installations. She blurs the borders between biology, archaeology, order, chaos, nature and the environment. Her latest showcase, part of Pace’s ‘Evolution’ exhibit currently on in Palo Alto, is a tour de force featuring animals in the wild (jackals, to be precise), ethereal abstractions and vivid compositions. She moves among genres, making art large and small, color-saturated and bleached-out; photographing still lifes, bacterial mutations, cityscapes, social structures and culture clashes.
‘Evolution’ features videos and prints emphasizing artists employing the language of abstraction and representation. One standout piece from Michal is the nocturnal silhouette of a jackal stretched across canvases, juxtaposed against dense/intense lines and tiny human figures. Her work here is gorgeous, ominous, wondrous-strange, and can produce sensations of uncanny self-revelation, surprise and delight. We love the shadowy silhouettes, glowing eyes and sketchy optical motion effects of Michal’s ‘Night’ photos. Take a look below…wow!
