The Chazan Gallery at Wheeler is pleased to present the solo show WORKSPACE featuring the work by Noam Elyashiv, from September 21 to October 14, 2023. There will be an opening reception for the artist on September 21, from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. All are welcome..
Noam Elyashiv is an Israeli-American artist whose work has been exhibited and published internationally. She received her BFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem and her MFA from RISD, where she teaches since 1994.
Noam is a two-time recipient of the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) Fellowship in Crafts and the America Israel Cultural Foundation Award. She served on RISCA jury committees, was a guest speaker for Art Jewelry Forum (AJF) and is a former resident artist at Mass MoCA, where she created sculptural objects and work on paper. Her work is in private and public collections, including the MFA Boston and the Schmuckmuseum in Pforzheim, Germany.
Noam’s practice focuses on transitional steps between drawing and creating objects that reside on the body and the gestures that occur in response to relocation, dimension and gravity. In her recent body of work, Time Lines, the majority of the pieces had previous lives and experienced some sort of metamorphosis. The work invites the viewer to stay longer and look closely to discover its nuanced formal history. Noam strives to reduce the physicality of objects into coherent expressions. She considers space as a real substance in her work, and the lines, planes and forms exist to hold and define it.
