Known for his photographic works, Maymon, who won the Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers in December, has gathered together various media in one space. Together, the works take on a spare, stoic aesthetic, achieved through a limited color palette and an ordered, taxonomic-like presentation.
One sculptural work is comprised of shelves displaying handmade pottery; their forms are inspired by pieces acquired during archaeological digs in the region, yet are reduced in scale and brightened with modern coloring. Another wall-hung work is made up of Ficus leaves picked from an area near Maymon’s studio, dipped in ink, and affixed to canvas. Their beautifully undulating shapes evoke both bird wings and lips, but also represent traditional methods in art being combined to modern and local materials.
