UPCOMING Exhibition

Ella

August 17 – January 12, 2025

About

Ella is an exhibition which examines the personal connections every person has to a woman. Be it their mother, grandmother, sister, cousin, friend, or significant other, every person has a special woman in their life. Through her series of sculptures Nour Kuri explores connection, perception, and emotion we have with the women in our lives. This exhibition not only challenges the viewer to think about these connections in their own lives but is also a celebration of the achievements of women in all aspects of life.

Nour perceives reality beyond appearances and uses sculpture as her medium to communicate her emotions and feelings through Bronze, Marble, Wood, Terra cotta and Glass. Her style is modern and incorporates stylized human forms. Though her sculptures tend to delve into abstraction, they maintain resemblance to the original form. The recurrent theme in Nour’s work is the human form, seeking to express it in different moments of life, love, family, and community.

This exhibition was organized by the artist, Nour Kuri.

Sobre

Ella es una exposición que examina las conexiones personales que cada persona tiene con una mujer. Ya sea su madre, abuela, hermana, prima, amiga o pareja, cada persona tiene una mujer especial en su vida. A través de su serie de esculturas, Nour Kuri explora las conexiones, las percepciones y las emociones que tenemos con las mujeres en nuestras vidas. Esta exposición no sólo desafía al espectador a pensar en estas conexiones en sus propias vidas, sino que también es una celebración de los logros de las mujeres en todos los aspectos de la vida.

Nour percibe la realidad más allá de las apariencias y utiliza la escultura como medio para comunicar sus emociones y sentimientos a través del Bronce, Mármol, Madera, Terracota y Vidrio. Su estilo es moderno e incorpora formas humanas estilizadas. Aunque tienden a la abstracción mantienen su cercanía con el objeto del cual parten. Su tema recurrente es principalmente la figura humana expresándose en diferentes momentos de la vida, de la pareja, la familia y la comunidad.
