Local Language is thrilled to present a new exhibition by Artist in Residence Minoosh Zomorodinia. In her new series, Zomorodinia re-forms and reshapes the borders, while referencing historical monuments and the memory from the spaces and land in the digital age. She turns these routes into monumental forms based on the outline of her paths to represent topography. The abstracted natural imagery is printed on leftover layers with the texture from the actual location. The printed images transform perceptions of…

The work invites a careful viewing to take in the complexities, revel in the imagery and discover the hidden surprises. Of special note is So Shoot Me, an extravagant lighted cut tin shooting gallery piece, reminiscent of carnival shooting galleries, chock full of heroes, villains and sidekicks.  Richly evocative,…

Pantea Karimi: Artful Attacks – MERCURY 20 GALLERY

June 17 - July 24
Mercury 20 Gallery, 475 25th Street
Oakland, CA 94612 United States
+ Google Map
Free

In the past few months, while working on her new series Artful Attacks, Karimi has been preoccupied with thoughts of political pressure and sanctions on Iran. The title refers to the mysterious attacks that have targeted Iran's nuclear power plants in the historic city of Natanz. Her new body of work was shaped organically as a reaction to the coverage of these incidents in the media. As a result, Karimi’s 42-foot-long scroll drawings visualize deconstructed, interrupted, and ambiguously arranged geometric patterns as a metaphor for…

Bay Area artist Christine Meuris focuses on translating traditional home-based arts executed in fabric and fiber into works on and of paper. Her inspirations come from quilting patterns, needlepoint patterns, and woven tapestry. She uses bookbinding cloth, a stiff, loosely woven fabric, to secure paper seams. During the pandemic year while things felt simultaneously dangerous and vague, and social systems revealed themselves to be more fragile than previously imaginable, she began exposing and working with more of this transparent scrim. In her show Veiled, Meuris explores…

The Alice Collective, 272 14th St
Oakland, CA 94612 United States
+ Google Map

“Born of reflection, my pieces become visual experiences, coming to terms with the command and inevitability of time. Brought up in a suburban American home seeped in East Indian heritage and repetitive modal music, I now attempt to resolve my own sense of meaning and truth, endlessly searching to remember and rediscover that which was once familiar. My current bodies of work examine the fragility of the actual; the processing of our place in the now. The acknowledgement of time…
