PRESS RELEASE | Visit the exhibition online with Artsy – ‘InBodied Light’ – or as a featured artist for the PRPG.mx show as part of the international art fair week – ‘imPosible’ – in Mexico City, Mexico from April 24th to June 5th, 2021, and online with Artsy.net April 24th to June 24th, 2021.
Zahava Sherez’s art is the essence of the human journey experienced by the individual and the collective. Zahava was born in a historically persecuted people and has experienced multiple immigrations, wars, oppression, and loss. “While the cultures I have been exposed to taught me the magnificent differences between them, the most important thing I learned is how profoundly alike we are. Scientists, psychologist, cardiologists, hospice caretakers, clergymen/women, Joseph Campbell, channeled information, fractals, kabbalah, and my personal and ancestral experiences have been my teachers, showing me that there is an energetic field that connects all and everything.” For this reason, her figures exist as abstractions representing the continuity and connections within humanity, but not attached to the parameters allowing separation from humanity. Her influences are many but include Brancusi, Isamu Noguchi, Eva Hesse, Rumi, and The Guides. Zahava’s work appears in private and corporate collections in the U.S, Israel, The Netherlands, Australia, Corsica, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. She has won numerous awards and exhibited internationally.
Zahava Sherez is a current artist in residency with PRPG.mx living and working in Chapala, Mexico and Oakland, California. She produced some of the work included in the show as part of the residency Art Lab Project with a concurrent group exhibition presented on Artsy.net along with participation in PRPG.mx’s inclusion in Zona Maco. Zona Maco 2021 is part of the International Art Fair week in Mexico City, Mexico from April 27th – May 2nd 2021. You can visit PRPG.mx in the heart of CDMX’s cultural district Colonia Juarez or view the entire exhibit on Arty.net.
