Age of Entanglement will include video, hybrid paintings and hybrid sculptures. Combining large-scale, intensely colored abstract paintings with video projections, Kremer creates hybrids that blur the distinction between the two mediums and alter the physical relationship one normally has to painting. A consistent underlying principle in Kremer’s work has been a disruption of the painted surface. In 2000, Kremer began experimenting with video in order to explore the element of time in her work. She began by animating some texts she’d written, and continued with animating some of her finished paintings. In 2008 she started to explore projecting video onto her paintings. By layering the paintings with moving images, she has been able to incorporate the time component in an immediate way.
Kremer was born in Tel Aviv, Israel and currently lives and works in the Bay Area. She earned her MFA from California College of the Arts, and an MA in Art History from Sussex University in Brighton, England. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is found in museum collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, Hammer Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts.
On Thursday, June 11, at 7pm, Naomie Kremer will give a talk about her work as part of the ICA’s Talking Art education program. Admission is free.
