Quint Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition, SASHA KOOZEL REIBSTEIN: Antivenom.This is the first solo exhibition at the gallery for the artist. The exhibition opens on Saturday, July 20th with a public reception from 11AM to 1PM, the artist will be in attendance.
In Antivenom, Sasha Koozel Reibstein explores transformation, ambiguity and the sublime through ceramics and mixed media that blend abstraction and representation. Intricately carved forms and seductive, shimmering surfaces demonstrate an obsessive attention to detail. Highly articulated drip formations merge and metamorphize with flowers, serpents and crystals evoking symbolic and emotional responses. This body of work also reflects on the California dream, both as a fantasy and reality. Through references to landscape and heavy use of gold, glitter and iridescence, the work communicates an idealism and optimism that is both beautiful and surreal.
Sasha Koozel Reibstein received her MFA in Sculpture from Massachusetts College of Art and her BFA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in Ceramics and Painting. She is currently a Professor of Art and Head of the Ceramics Program at Palomar College in San Marcos, CA.
