JB2017 officially opened on Sunday, October 1st with a reception held at the Bezeq Building where the JAI exhibition is on view. Our exhibit has been very well received and Co-Curators Anne and Georgia were invited to meet with press from a number of foreign countries on Monday, October 2nd.

Four of the murals are displayed in the large room we were given, and we were also able to display many of the preliminary sketches and working layouts as well. The fifth mural was given its own space leading into the room and sets the tone for the exhibition. We have had a great deal of positive feedback about the JAI exhibition.

Yaron Dotan • Sight Unseen • bG Gallery, Santa Monica
May 13, 2017
June 3, 2017

Opening Reception: May 13th, 5-8pm

Exhibit will run thru June 3rd

bG gallery presents its first feature exhibit of Yaron Dotan. Combining optical drawing
and painting Dotan, creates a way of ‘seeing’ without seeing, to explore the invisible
physics of our most intimate of connections. 

Yaron begins with india ink drawn on gessoed panels. The work is composed
using pulsations and rhythms taken from optical imagery and design. He builds
gradations of tone onto a rhythmic framework to delineate an image that is
constantly being interrupted and abstracted.

“LET HER SPEAK” is written in capital letters on a protestor’s sign.
“YOU’RE NASTY” is scrawled across city gates.
A flag emblazoned with the words “BULLETS WON’T STOP HIM”
flies high above a gathering of tents.

In Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik’s latest series of papercuts the diverse and passionate voices of America
are front and center in his most politically informed series yet.
