    Exhibition of sculptures by French artist Elisabeth Raphaël, East Gallery, Buell Hall

    Following the opening reception, the exhibition will be on view October 23-November 21, 12-5 p.m., and during evening events

    Elisabeth Raphaël’s fourteen sculptures exhibited at the Columbia Maison Française draw their inspiration from a reading of the Tanakh - the Hebrew Bible - but other books can be imagined too in these works. Each sculpture contains an ancient Hebrew text stamped on fragile leaves made of bone china. Some leaves are hidden between minimalist clay blocks. Other leaves are caressed by hands of wrapped textile.

    Elisabeth Raphaël lives and works in Paris. Her works have been exhibited in France, Belgium, Israel, the United Kingdom and China. She won the Grand Prix of the International Biennale of Vallauris in 2012. Her sculptures and installations are represented in the Magnelli Museum of Vallauris, the Museum of Châteauroux and t

  • Oct 29, 2014 to Dec 6, 2014
  • Location: FIAF Gallery
  • Description:

    The Art of Sex and Seduction enters the gallery with striking portraits that are as erotic as they are sleek. A master of his craft, Jean-Daniel Lorieux’s work for the likes of Vogue, Dior, andLanvin has turned fashion photography into sensual iconography.

    Lorieux’s camera acts as a third eye, focusing on what is most exquisite in the world. He captures idealized images of women, glorifying them from dawn to dusk. Splendid, ethereal, and statuesque, these women inhabit a world created by Lorieux’s lens.

    The original work of three French artists Love U Sev, Sophie Chemla and Marie Delabos will be on display at Agora Gallery, NYC.

    About Love U Sev


    The surreal portrait photography of French artist Love U Sev is both compelling and otherworldly. Love U Sev approaches her photographs in an entirely new way, superimposing her own self-portraits with portraits of American singer Michael Jackson, without retouching either image. The resulting picture is a figurative study in contrast and juxtaposition, as elements of each face emerge and recede to create a surrealistic and highly emotive effect that is almost abstract in its execution. The driving force behind Love U Sev’s art is a deep and abiding love. Indeed, these photographs were inspired by two intense dramas that occurred in the artist’s life: the death of Michael Jackson in 2009 and that of her husband in 2010. The emotional depth of the resulting images is nothing if not intense. And the truncation of the artist’s own face is both sym
