Artist to Discuss Meaning of 'Home' in Exhibited Works
Published on January 16, 2012
The Lore Degenstein Gallery at Susquehanna University will showcase the work of New York-based, international artist Asya Reznikov in “Up-Routed For,” Jan. 21 to March 2. The public is invited to hear Reznikov describe her work at a free opening reception Jan. 21 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Reznikov’s dynamic pieces explore immigration, cultural identity, foreignness, travel and one’s sense of home. The works include photography, freestanding and wall-hung video sculptures and installations, drawings and paintings.
“The main difference between her show and others is the digital sculptures, the likes of which the Lore Degenstein Gallery has not yet seen,” gallery director Dan Olivetti said. “They are thought-provoking, and can be humorous as well.”
The recipient of numerous awards and residencies, Reznikov received her Master of Fine Arts degree from Hunter College in New York City, and her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She has studied in Berlin, Germany, and Wolvenhampton, England, and has lived and worked in France, England, Holland, Italy, Germany and India. Reznikov’s work has appeared in galleries and museums from California to Europe to the Republic of Korea.
The gallery is open from noon to 4 p.m. daily. For more information, visit www.susqu.edu/art_gallery.
