Elyashiv Work at Barbara Davis Gallery, Houston
Yizhak Elyashiv (Senior Critic, Experimental and Foundation Studies) has a two-person exhibition (with Ruth Shouval) entitled Drift currently on show at the Barbara Davis Gallery (4411 Montrose Blvd. Houston) until 28th May 2016.
Elyashiv’s latest body of work explores the elusive state of the landscape, drawing inspiration from the abstract structures that shape an observed space. These spaces are formed by the abundance of water embedded in the fields and the lack of water present in the desert. His artistic interactions with the landscape are like those taken by a farmer or a settler, they are homage to and a metaphor for the state of survival.
