Cut and Paste
May 21 – July 1st, 2021
Braverman Gallery, Eilat 33, Tel Avis.
Summer Wheat’s Cut and Paste features a series of new paintings that represent the culmination of the last five years of the artist’s practice. Each work is a mini-retrospective of sorts, as Wheat brings together disparate subjects, palettes, and formal qualities from her Beekeepers, Hunters, Gardeners, and Moneymaker series. Elements from these previous bodies of work are metaphorically “cut and pasted” to create new, densely layered compositions that visualize Wheat’s decades-long investigation into the historical documentation of women’s labor―and its absence.
