Artist Is Schuster returns to her digital roots in her current exhibit, Manifestations, on display at One Art Space in Tribeca from May 11th through June 2nd. Each colorful canvas features vibrant, complex and glowing elaborations of ancient symbols, calling forth living energies and invoking powerful manifestations of humanity’s deepest hopes and dreams. Ms. Schuster invites the viewer to use her work as interactive tools, unleashing the innate power of each symbol in order to develop the specific attributes and characteristics necessary to achieve one’s goals and fulfill one’s destiny.
A member of MIT’s pioneering Architecture Machine Group in the 1970’s, Is Schuster was the first artist to exhibit digital art in New York City. Her prize-winning works have been displayed throughout the United States, Europe and the Middle East in such places as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the International Center of Photography in New York City, the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Dubai, and the Detroit Institute of Art in Michigan.
