Khaki Gallery of Boston, MA: is pleased to present “Khaki and Ringdahl Group Exhibition”, featuring Nahid Khaki’s latest sculptural installation of an artificial crowd of over 40 human-like figures layered in female clothing, mostly headless except for their scarves which cover the top portion of their structures. Some are covered with veils made of wire mesh, a symbolic reference to lack of freedom of expression and inequality for women in the Middle East.
Nahid Khaki is an Iranian-born artist who has lived in the United States since the early 1970s.
A peek preview of J.R. Ringdahl’s exploratory sculptural works “The Bog Series” is a colorful and provocative statement about life, death and the unseen energy that is the life force. A force that cannot be destroyed but only changes form is examined in his art. Moving from youth towards death, a documentation of the stages of deterioration of the physical form is profound and sometimes disturbing. Ringdahl provides a forum to view the natural order of the universe.
J.R. Ringdahl an American born artist from a long lineage of Swedish artists, currently has a solo exhibition at the Milton Art Museum in Canton, MA.
