Mark Moore Gallery is pleased to announce the release of a new major wall sculpture work by gallery artist YORAM WOLBERGER. The first of this series is now available for presale at this time.
Of this work, Wolberger writes:
“A commonly used, mass-produced shopping bag, stamped with the iconic graphic of a red Poppy and “Thank You”, escaped an overloaded trash bin near a Mall’s food court. It has been lifted high up into the air, following us on our way back home, floating over the city’s buildings, highways, and bridges. We watch it struggling to transform its beaten and wrinkled form, as if it is trying to elevate its existence, from a utilitarian by-product of consumerism to a featherlike, translucent spectacle with a new destiny.”
“My art strives to manipulate and challenge perceptions of the familiar through a variety of sculptural interventions. I often choose to work with everyday, culturally familiar iconic objects to which we attach deep-seated and often unconscious meanings. Transformed beyond their original context, these objects suggest new associations and provoke fresh insights into their larger societal relevance and influence.”
Wolberger’s (b. 1963, Tel Aviv, Israel) works have been acquired for the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art (NY), Frederick R. Weisman Foundation (CA), the Orange County Museum of Art (CA), Sweeney Art Gallery, University of California Riverside (CA) and the McNay Art Museum (TX). The artist lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
