The photographer Edward Steichen stated, “Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man”.

Contemporary digital artist Israeli Orly Aviv uses technology to reality’s advantage, sampling nature photographically in order to digitally create new images, presenting to the world its own digitally enhanced representation. By photographing an image and then digitally manipulating that image towards abstraction, duration is involved in the final production of Ms. Aviv’s digital prints, expressing more than mimetic representation by symbolically interpreting the flux status of reality.

Contemporary life, a globalized village phenomenologically vast to the existential condition, is eloquently expressed as a space of perpetual movement and in turn, innumerable possibilities in Ms. Aviv’s artwork. What better way to express our technological age than through professing the agility and endurance of space and time by way of digitally manipulating actual places. One acquires a sense of optical actuality in her works, but instead of limiting her representation to mere vision, Ms. Aviv presents reality as a visual and sensational space, one that is experienced momentously through temporal duration.

In her “Passion” Series, Ms. Aviv evokes duration through circuitous ellipse formations, morphing static imagery to spiral indefinitely within the composition. In Ms. Aviv’s work, one recognizes the importance of time in understanding the world, realizing that with technology, one does not necessarily recognize the distance remarkably lapsed within moments; time regains autonomy and is actively recognized, in conjunction with space, as a defining characteristic of the contemporary age in Ms. Aviv’s digital art.

The award-winning artist Orly Aviv received her BA in Mathematics and Political Science and MSc in Information Systems in Israel and her MFA in Media Arts at the Slade, UCL in London. Along with photography, Ms. Aviv works creates video art and digital installations.

INTERVIEW: CECILIA IBETH ÁLVAREZ MORENO

Interviews | September 24, 2020

I was born in Mexico City, my parents were both plastic artists, so artistic expression is in my blood, it is part of me, beyond what academic study can do for anyone. My mother said I was born bored. I am a person who gets bored easily with routine. What I paint, must necessarily take me to a world full of fantasy where there is always an explanation for my reality. Read more


INTERVIEW: MELANIE MOLLO

Feelings flow freely into the soul, without control, as the colors on the canvas become one with it. That it is happiness, sadness, love, passion, anger, they dominate us and dominate our actions. Like the flow of a river into the sea, they get lost in the immensity of our being, regenerating itself in the latter, and then share their new life as a drop and source of feeling. This underlines the cyclical nature without a beginning or an end. Feelings are part of us forging our character. Read more

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
