DEVORAH SPERBER: Threads of Perception

i


DEVORAH SPERBER: THREADS OF PERCEPTION ABOUT Devorah Sperber was born in 1961 and raised in Detroit, Michigan until the age of ten, when she moved to Denver, Colorado. From 1979 to 1981, she attended the Art Institute of Colorado, Denver, and in 1987, she received her BA from Regis University, Colorado. Shortly after graduation, Sperber was asked to include her figurative stone sculptures and related bronze castings in a national exhibition on the Holocaust victim Anne Frank, which helped in the emergence of her career. Devorah Sperber has exhibited in numerous institutions across the United States, including Mass MoCA, North Adams, Massachusetts (2008); the Robert Hull Fleming Museum, University of Vermont, Burlington (2007); the Montclair Art Museum, New Jersey (2004). In 2007, she had a one-person exhibition, The Eye of the Artist: The Work of Devorah Sperber, at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York.

EXHIBIT New York artist Devorah Sperber combines commonplace materials with simple optical devices to investigate the connections between art, perception and technology. Her works addresses the complex relationship between the way we think we see and the way the brain actually processes images. Her most recent works examines famous paintings from art history. "I like to explore the science of what we see, so I chose these paintings specifically for their historical and scientific merit," says Sperber. "Artists were beginning to paint three-quarter profiles where the eyes are centered left to right, but the brain is hardwired to recognize or create symmetry. Vermeer used some kind of lens or camera obscura, evidenced by the rounded slightly distorted face in The Girl with the Pearl Earring, and in Da Vinci's Last Supper, Jesus' right eye is the vanishing point of the whole painting." These details bring art lovers and scientists together in fully engaged conversation.

EMILY KING: SNOW DRIVEN ABOUT Creation is a huge part of Emily’s life. The decision to major in art was an easy one, narrowing her focus proved to be the difficult part. Emily has always loved capturing the human form no matter the medium. Forms simplified and unique color palettes established themselves early in her aesthetics. Drawing and color are the two most significant elements in Emily’s work. She has a unique way of scaling things down to their most simple form yet in an incredibly descriptive way. Emily draws upon the human experience for inspiration. Her wish as an artist is to be a force for good. Family is central to her, she uniquely captures those moments of happiness that secure our bonds to one another and keep us moving forward.

Emily grew up in Salt Lake City, UT and received her BFA from The University of Utah in 2004 with an emphasis in painting / drawing. Emily has lived in both Tulsa, Oklahoma and Malibu, California. She now resides in Kaysville, Utah with her husband Joshua and small children Esmae(5) and Abram(2)

EXHIBIT In her latest series, Emily King focuses on Park City’s appeal to both its inhabitants and visitors - snow. Her simplified color forms cut from paper capture the many different winter scenes and sports of this popular resort community.

AMY PRUZAN: REFLECTIONS ABOUT Amy Pruzan works in a variety of media, but maintains a strong focus on glass and photography. She earned her B.F.A degree, Magna Cum Laude, from Cornish College of the Arts in 2006, with triple majors in sculpture, print, and photography. Pruzan has studied at institutions such as Alexander Muss in Israel, Pilchuck Glass School, and Pratt Fine Arts Center. Her work resides in several permanent collections including the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Pruzan has worked along side many Prominent Local artists, such as Sonja Blomdahl, Ginny Ruffner, and Martin Blank. Recently this Seattle Native has been honored with both the Corning award nomination form Pilchuck Glass Schools, and the George Tsutakawa Scholarship from Pratt Fine Arts Center.

EXHIBIT Seattle based artist Amy Pruzan’s work combines glass, metal and photography. Her photographic images are both literal and metaphorical representations of memory. The glass elements of her pieces function as lenses through which memories are reflected or distorted, addressing questions of what happens to one’s memories over the passage of time.
