ZAZ10TS pleased to present Claudia Alvarez: A Moment In Between, a new exhibition by internationally recognized Mexican-American artist, Claudia Alvarez, featuring watercolors and several new pieces showing for the first time, including the “Wading” video and two ceramic sculptures titled “Sitting” and “Untitled.”
Claudia Alvarez created “A Moment In Between” to capture a suspended time in our collective consciousness, where we grapple with universal themes like the struggle for power, vulnerability and violence, youth and aging, and even immigration. As with the pieces included in the new exhibition, her work features child bodies with adult faces, posing with adult characteristics. Her use of this convention serves as a means of simplifying the complexities of the world by viewing life experiences from the perspective of a child, focusing attention on elements of human nature evoked by the pieces she has created. Ultimately, the “Claudia Alvarez: A Moment In Between” exhibition is a social reflection on humanity and how we react in a given moment.
