Free & open to the Public. The NYOC Gallery is pleased to present Metaphorically Speaking, a solo exhibition of Judith Ostrowitz’s works on Plexiglas and paper. This exhibition will run from November 15 – December 20, 2013 with an opening reception on Friday, November 15 from 6-8:00 p.m.
Judith Ostrowitz\’s body of work synthesizes the universal language of symbols and archetypes, derived from Alchemy, Qabalah, Tarot and other Western Mystery traditions with images of contemporary objects. Digitized paintings, drawings, and photographs are adhered to Plexiglas and appear to float, suggesting a holographic, ephemeral reality. These fantastical, Neo-Surreal landscapes are akin to our nightly dreams, prompting the viewer to decode its symbol-laden compositions. Through the very act of examination, personal, revelatory interpretations and new meanings are often inferred. www.opencenter.org/gallery
