Opening Reception

Artist’s Talk
​in conversation with Barbara Morris
Saturday, July 27, 2 pm

All are welcome to stop in Saturday, June 29th between 1 and 4 pm to greet the artists during the Opening Reception for “Silent Conversation” and concurrent exhibition, “Many Hands.” Enjoy the light refreshments served on our lovely outdoor deck and check out the new work at Transmission Gallery.

Transmission Gallery presents Silent Conversation, a solo exhibition of recent figurative paintings and ceramic works by Livia Stein.

Animals, masks and enigmatic figures serve as stand-ins for the self and other in Stein’s ongoing investigations into the intricate dance between identity and interaction. Fearless in her use of color, she pushes along the edges between frustration, fears, familiarity and affection, navigating the subtleties of unspoken communication and the nuanced complexities of human relationships in richly painted canvases ranging from large scale works such as Kong and Fay Ray, 72” x 72,” and The Bones, 55” x 55,” to a number of mid-size pieces, including Life and Death and Black Head, both 30” x 30”.

Punctuated with intense blacks and vibrant hues, these artworks are not mere visual spectacles; they unfold as meditations, evolving with each viewing like the evolving dynamics of personal connections, shifting and changing over time in elusive quiet ways. Meanwhile, her ceramic creations, characterized by whimsical yet poignant distortions, embody a spectrum of emotions akin to the characters inhabiting the paintings. Slumped over, brightly standing, quizzical, they echo themes and ideas explored on canvas.

Mark your calendar and please join us for the Artist’s Talk, Saturday, July 27th starting at 2pm as Stein discusses her work in conversation with artist and writer Barbara Morris. ​
