New Works by Ewa Gavrielov and Heather Wilcoxon!
Born in Poland and raised in Israel, Ewa trained as an architect and worked for many years as a graphic designer and illustrator, designing books, magazines and promotional items for numerous organizations. She began printmaking in 1997 and now spends much of her time working in Kala’s studios.
My works come out of a kind of exploratory alertness for the interaction of the marks and the space that is unmarked. I combine shapes which strike me as interesting, but which I dont have specific plans for; then I watch to see what will come into being on the paper.
Heather uses a variety of drawing, painting and printing techniques to build up her wry, surreal and animated images, forming character-scenarios which, according to her, “reflect all of our concerns, our fears, our worries and our brutality towards one another.”
The creatures (body parts, faces, eyeballs, etc.) that inhabit her work hint at the threatening, the grotesque and hairy, the whimsical, the beasty, and the absurd. Together they reflect her concern for nature, the local ecology, and other socially charged themes.
Heather received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1988, and has been exhibited and collected widely. She lives on a houseboat in Sausalito and teaches at Kala.
