August 20 – September
Opening Reception: Saturday, August 20th, 6:00 - 8:00pm
Hera Gallery is pleased to exhibit dual solo show by Alexandra Broches
and Michael Yefko. Both members of Hera Gallery, Broches will be exhibiting
new photographs while Yefko will be presenting a new series of sculptures.
Broches will exhibit a selection of photographs from an ongoing
series of landscape imagery. As a photographer, Alexandra explores our
culture's view of nature and the ways in which we respond to and impact
the world around us. Broches' work explores a sense of place, collective
and individual memory, and identity in relation to land. She is interested
in the domestic, private, and the 'small'. The images displayed in her
show were taken on a recent trip through the southeastern United States.
Some of the photographs are amusing, ironic, and puzzling; some imply
social and political consequences that are of immediate, if not critical,
Yefko's exhibition, Shed, is a conceptual installation of sculpture,
paintings, and drawings that explore the idea of the shed in noun and
verb form; from the concrete to the abstract. This exhibition continues
Yefko's interest in exploring the strange world of suburbia and the many
facets of current housing issues, from the personal search for home to
the cultural tragedies of the foreclosure crisis.
Shed is an exploration of the sacred and the profane. It is about shedding
one's skin, setting the personal façade adrift, and revealing one's humanity
through the redemptive act of art-making," says Yefko. For Michael,
"the political, cultural, and social turmoil at work in the world
presents a challenge and opportunity to us all. We are seeking home in
one way or another. Materialism is a facade that needs to be set adrift
to reveal deeper perspectives to life. Art can be a catalyst to this effort."
