Galatea Fine Art is pleased to present Couplings, a solo exhibition of new work by Hilary Tait Norod. Please join us on Saturday, January 31st, from 12-5 p.m., for the Exhibition Closing Reception. Live jazz music from 2-4pm.
In the exhibition a sense of identity is at play. “Couplings” will ignite questions of our own identity within the relationships we value most. Norod presents a series of mixed media paintings developed from an interactive study of couples. Interviews of these couples were conducted and documented by video, email, or written letter. Norod immersed herself in the dialogues by exploring the intricacies of interpersonal relationships. The couplings included romantic, unique and familial relationships where a multitude of emotions were expressed then translated abstractly by the artist. Each couple’s interview was interpreted onto one canvas or panel. This series takes a personal and in depth look at the unities formed throughout a relationship and how an individual lives inside a couple.
Norod grew up on the South Shore of Massachusetts and was surrounded by a creative family, exceeding generations of Artists. Before graduation from Skidmore College with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Studio Art Norod was the 2009 recipient of the Jesse Soloman Award for Most Outstanding Painting. After completing her degree Hilary moved to Los Angeles and exhibited her work in several galleries on the West Coast. Her work has been published in books that were distributed internationally, magazines, and promoted in online catalogs. In 2013 Hilary returned to the East coast and continued exhibiting her work in Boston and the surrounding area. Her work currently follows the complexities of the human mind by translating perception disorders, neuroscience, psychology and the analysis of relationships and identity.
