York College Art Gallery presents
Gal-Ed Means a Pile of Stones
Noa Charuvi, September 14th to October 20th, 2023
York College Art Gallery is pleased to present Gal-Ed Means a Pile of Stones, paintings by Noa Charuvi:
Noa Charuvi’s paintings convey a distinct sense of place where narratives of the present interrupt those of the past with urgency, sometimes even violence . Yet, her places encapsulate past and present not only as a rupture but also as an ongoing flow of coinciding contradictory forces – ruin and construction, anarchy and order. No matter if the painting depicts an interior of a room or an exterior of a construction site, it frequently portrays a place that is devoid of human figures but charged with the aftermath of human actions.
