Artist list

Ariel Lavian
Corona times urged Ariel Lavian to close down the shutters facing outward and focus on creating a new series, “Depths of Heaven,” which unfurls a new branch of his work.

In his new solo exhibition, Lavian presents jewelry and objects made of copper and silver, using the foldforming technique.

Just as in foldforming where the starting point is a clear and smooth sheet of metal, Lavian himself has opened a new and intriguing sheet. The social critique that emanated from his earlier work is now directed inward; Lavian has conducted a rigorous interrogation of his own self in order to hone his intentions and create objects that give precise, tangible expression to his personal responses.

In the choreography between hammer, metal, and anvil, generated by the artist’s initials, inward impulse, a vibrating pulsation emerges and extends itself far beyond the workbench and simultaneously resounds back into the body and affects the rhythm of successive movements. The continuous hardening of the metal decrees a consistent change in its surface and creates an intimacy that unites the artist with the responsive material in a delicate, mutual transformation.

Every movement requires its right time” (Tao Te Ching - Lao Tzu)

Lavian sets out unto his path without leaving his studio. His journey through the materials has found its right moment
