Moti Hasson Gallery is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of new work by Shirley Shor, her first since the gallery’s move to Chelsea. Born in Israel and currently living and working in San Francisco, Shor received her Master of Fine Arts from San Francisco State University in 2004.
Presenting three new works for the exhibition, Shor will project images through layers of physical and virtual materials to evoke imaginary landscapes, and incorporate custom software, video projection, and sculptural elements to create a hybrid between more traditional and newer forms of media.
Shor is among an emerging generation of artists redefining how new media can be utilized as vehicles for artistic production. Often combining painting, sculpture, and media images generated in real time
- or what the artist has termed “liquid architecture” - Shor continues to play between the physical and the virtual in her works, using digital tools to examine the relationship between media and its projection onto the built environment, while consistently informed by formal investigations through the history of abstraction.
Shirley Shor has exhibited in the United States at the Berkeley Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Orange County Museum of Art, San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, among others, as well as internationally at Ars Electronica, Haifa Museum of Art, and Herzliya Museum of Art. Her work has also received critical acclaim in various print and online publications, including Artforum.com, Artnet.com, as well as the Los Angeles Times, and is held in various public and private collections.
Also showing at the Moti Hasson Gallery during this time is Jiha Moon: fabulous fictions.
