Claudia Alvarez: Boy in a Room
June 8 – September 2, 2018
ART TALK: July 21, 2pm - The Nyack Library
Claudia Alvarez interviewed by curator Jill DeVonyar
Claudia Alvarez creates ceramic sculptural installations of child-sized figures imbued with adult-like characteristics. The work engages in diverse and timeless subjects such as immigration, violence, youth/aging, and power struggles. The incongruity of these youthful figures placed in unexpected situations suggests a dreamlike state that challenges our perceptions of reality and emotional clarity.
For this exhibition Alvarez, will create childlike figures in the image of Edward Hopper as a way of thinking about Hopper reflecting back at himself from childhood to adulthood. The sculpture will suggest Hopper at different stages of his life, some will have an older face with a small body, or childlike body.
