Gallit Shaltiel, artist and illustrator, explores
depressed states of mind through a
black and white print exhibition, created by
using hand cut card silhouettes and a light box.
29th June – 29th July 2013
Opening night: 5th July 2013, 6 to 9 pm
Gallit Shaltiel is a Brighton based artist /illustrator and educator, launching her first solo London show at Oxford House.
‘Talking Underwater’ is a black and white print exhibition, using dark humour to convey the complex feelings of distressed and depressed states of mind.
The theme is explored through a mischievous world where uncanny anatomy and objects fragment, contort, and merge in to one another. The images are created by hand cut card silhouettes, transformed through photography on a light box.
For the opening night, on the 5th of July -6-9 pm-, the stop motion animation ‘flats’ will be shown. Influenced by Buster Keaton style slapstick, one figure struggles to break free of a concrete block of flats while another attempts to balance a spinning wheel on its back.
The artist will also be giving an insight into her practice through running a light box and silhouette workshop on the 13th July: ‘Illuminating the Subconscious’.
