Ilana Lewitan: IR (R) REAL ESTATE PAINTING AND CUBES
6 December 2013 – 8 February 2014
llana incorporates an intelligent sensitivity into her abstract artworks, often weaving contemplative sociological questions into her mixed media and watercolor pieces. With titles
like, “Pause for Thought,” “The Art of Lightness,” and “Hi!” llana asks deep questions wrapped in shrouds of frivolity and fun.
It is, however, her super-original Plexiglas cube creations that lead us into territory that is fresh, intoxicating and especially aesthetically rewarding. Every piece is thoughtfully designed,
and has a strong but distorted kaleidoscopic quality. Each presents a stimulating Statement by incorporating topical objects as facsimiles of herbage or automobiles. These incorporations act as sparks with which to ignite a sonorous investigation of our social patterns within the context of fantasy inspired art.
Ilana Levitan studied interior design and architecture in Munich, worked as an architect Richard Meier New York, as a designer at Dakota Jackson and as an illustrator at the
Earth Struck Corporation, before she turned to painting and trained under Professors Hans Daucher and Markus Liipertz.
