Finding Calmness in the Wild

Tinney Contemporary is pleased to present work from artist, Alice Zilberberg.

The work in this show comes from Alice’s series “Meditations”. In this series, Zilberberg creates animal montages as an expression of self-therapy. As an urbanite, functioning day-to-day in a fast-paced, built environment can be emotionally unsettling. The artist regrounds herself in the sense of calm issued by these animals. These creatures reinstate a presence, a tranquility, and a grander perspective. The works are an amalgam of many photographs from different locations around the world, put together seamlessly by the artist in post-production. Their minimal aesthetic is metaphorical of striving for simplicity. Rather than ruminating on the past, or hypothesizing the future, Zilberberg’s works invite a meditative state, encouraging the viewer to stay still and find happiness in the moment.

Alice Zilberberg is both a photographer and digital painter, creating meticulous compositions utilizing both photographs and digital manipulation. She developed her technique over the course of a decade, where multiple photographs are layered upon each other with color, toning, and painting.  Her images of landscapes and wildlife exude a dreamlike quality, indicative of our precarious relationship with the world we inhabit; the ways we define nature, and the ways nature defines us.   It often takes Zilberberg months to create a work, traveling across the world to capture wildlife with her camera, and detailing the final image.  The work resulting from these efforts are poetic, inviting viewers to look within.
