Georgian artists’ pencil art displayed at prominent US art fair

A piece of contemporary art by Georgian artist Maia Naveriani is on display in one of the most prestigious United States (US) art fairs dedicated solely to contemporary art.

A series of large pencil drawings titled ‘Future Wolves and Chicks So Far’ by London-based Naveriani was exhibited at the US art fair Pulse New York, held on March 5-8 in New York.

The art work, which explored the female subject through the artists’ own cultural memory fragments as well as the contemporary socio-cultural ‘jungle’ was presented by Project Artbeat, and used coloured pencils to transform memories into visuals that resemble collages.

“As a woman artist I have an unavoidable instinctive tendency to first of all address the queries about female identity and consciousness, and its relevance and impact in a contemporary context of dissolved values and ideologies…,” Naveriani said at Germany’s Galerie Voss in 2012.

To date Naveriani’s art pieces have been exhibited in many cities around the globe including London, New York, Amsterdam, Bologna, Wiesbaden, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Antwerp and Liverpool.
