Gallit Shaltiel is a Brighton based artist / illustrator and educator, launching her first solo London show at Oxford House.
'Talking Underwater' is a black and white print exhibition, using dark humour to convey the complex feelings of distressed and depressed states of mind. The theme is explored through a mischievous world where uncanny anatomy and objects fragment, contort, and merge into one another.
Images are created by hand cut card silhouettes, transformed through photography on a light box.
For the opening night the stop motion animation 'Flats' will be shown. Influenced by Buster Keaton style slapstick, a figure struggles to break free of a concrete block of flats creating surreal scenarios.
The artist will also be giving an insight into her practice through running a light box and silhouette workshop.
The workshop, 'Illuminating the Subconscious' will happen on the 13th July between 2pm and 5pm.
Creative and fun activities will give participants a chance to transform images from subconscious states of mind into magical light boxes.
