fluence+ is a monthly online exhibition series featuring new bodies of work as well as recent discoveries from across the spectrum of genres and time periods. A digital supplement to the gallery’s regular programming and a portal to art that has never been seen or displayed, this platform endeavors to breach boundaries; to expand our showings beyond physical walls, reach a wider audience, and multiply the element of surprise that has always propelled Ricco/Maresca’s mission.
TWO → Lidia Syroka: Body Alchemy - Series 7. Swipe left!
“Syroka’s output in the last decade is an extensive exploration of the concept of metamorphosis; the ‘alchemy’ that takes place when spiritual activity causes physical transformation. The artist’s own body thus becomes a symbolic conduit for growth and decay, construction and deconstruction. In each series leading up to ‘Series 7’ (from 2006 through 2016), Syroka conceived a different technique to match a particular stage in her profoundly personal investigations of corporeality ... ‘Series 7,’ notable for its austerity and nuance, is the latest and most intimately scaled in this singular progression. Here, texture interacts with form in subtle and intricate rhythms and Syroka’s consistent exploration of anthropomorphic themes merges cogently with abstract executions. As the artist sees it: ‘conflict in the body and points of tension require attention and are schematically expressed by an inner black construction … the meandering of the paper building the outer form.’” More info: https://bit.ly/2L4a4IF
