The Likenesses of Light
October 16 – December 20

Press Release

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present The Likenesses of Light, a series of new video installations by Albuquerque resident Mary Tsiongas. Mining the University of New Mexico Art Museum’s extensive drawing and print collection, Tsiongas appropriates images of work by Corot, Daubigny, and Edward Skeats to create five new video pieces. Using green screen techniques, characters appear on the screen to erase, alter and reveal these iconic artworks. Tsiongas’ vision relates the interdependence of plants, animals and humans with the interrelationships of art forms through contemporary media. Informed by early film history, these works are captivating scenarios that allude to childhood fables and folklore.

Born in Greece and now based in Albuquerque, NM, Mary Tsiongas has performed, exhibited and lectured extensively for the past ten years. Her work has been shown in over forty solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. She is the recipient of several awards including a WESTAF NEA grant and residencies at the McColl Center in Charlotte, NC and Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, CA. Tsiongas is currently an Associate Professor in Electronic Media at the University of New Mexico.

The gallery will be closed from November 27 – December 11 for the Thanksgiving holiday and for our annual exhibition in Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach. This year Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to participate in Miami Project – an event not to be missed and runs from December 3 – 8, 2013.
