Artists Reception Thursday, February 9, 1–3:00 p.m
Oceanside CA— MiraCosta College presents an exhibit featuring the paintings of artists Alla Bartoshchuk, Leslie Nemour and Kurosh Yahyai. The show, titled, ‘Out of Body’ opens February 7 and continues through March 3 in the college’s Kruglak Gallery.
Out of Body brings together three figurative painters whose work transcends academic tradition in the overlay of physical reality with an otherworldly existence. Alla Bartoshchuk applies symbolism through private imaginative images that arise from the depth of the psyche and embrace the surreal quality of dreams, fantasies and premonitions. Kurosh Yahyai researches the anxious and existential nature of the human mind to help visualize, portray and make tangible the battle within the conscious and subconscious mind. Leslie Nemour secludes unsettled transitional moments from film to suggest a disconnection between memory and the conscious self. All three artists have connections the MiraCosta College Art Department: two as prior students and one as a current professor of art. Curated by Leslie Nemour.
A reception for the artists will be held Thursday, February 9, 1–3 p.m., and the artists will give talks that same day at 11:30 a.m. and again on Monday February 13 at 3 p.m. Admission to the gallery, reception and talks are free and open to the public.
