“You can’t change your fingerprint but you can change the way you think.” The words are written in calligraphic Hebrew on an egg-shaped sculpture, portraying one of Israeli artist Nava Waxman’s mottos. The piece is just a small sample of the work displayed in her new Toronto solo show, PERSONIFICATIONS, opening this Thursday, July 25.
Combining sculpture, painting, drawing, calligraphy, collage, and modularity, PERSONIFICATIONS is sure to be an engaging and stimulating exhibit. It explores her views about her existence and female identity, so expect something sincere and intimate—the best kind of art.
Nava Waxman: PERSONIFICATIONS runs from July 25 to September 1 at the Julie M. Gallery (15 Mill St.).
