Erika Lizee – Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine

Erika Lizee recently completed an 8’ x 13’ x 2′ installation for the “High Priestess” exhibit at ArtShare LA, titled “Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine.” In this piece, Lizee is contemplating the idea of representing existence as a single point. If that point expands equally in all directions a circle is created. Move to any point on that circle’s circumference and create another circle of equal diameter. The overlapping of these circles creates the form the vesica piscis. “Homage to the Mystery and Wisdom of the Feminine” is an installation that uses the upright vesica piscis as a symbol that connects with the Great Mother.

Zemer Peled – Ceramic Sculptures

Zemer Peled was born and raised in a Kibbutz in the northern part of Israel. After completing a BA (Hons) at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem she graduated with an MA (Hons) from the Royal College of Art. In recent years her work has been featured nationally and internationally in museums and galleries including Sotheby’s and Saatchi Gallery-London, Eretz Israel Museum-Tel Aviv and the Orangerie du Senate, Paris among others.

Zemer Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. Her sculptural language is formed by her surrounding landscapes and nature, engaging with themes of nature and memories, identity and place. Her works are formed of thousand of ceramic shards constructed into large-scale/small-scale sculptures and installations.
