Repetition: A study on geometric shapes, colors, and dimensions

  • Conversation from the Corrine Woodman Gallery, Thursday, September 5, 12 noon-1 pm

This exhibit showcases Levant Karayalim’s three dimensional wall hangings. All pieces are made from repurposed materials such as corrugated paper, wood, cloth, and canvas. His works combine vibrant color combinations as well as bold black and white contrasting geometric shapes.

Levant was born in Istanbul, Turkey and moved to the United States in the late 1980’s. At age 25, while living in NYC, he restored 14th-15th-16th French and Flemish Medieval tapestries that now reside in museums and residences. This talent has transformed into his artworks. He is inspired by Neo-concrete and Minimalists art movements. Work in this show focus on repetition and creating a large whole from smaller repetitive elements.
