IN THE WRINKLE OF THE CRANKLE: WORKS BY ELVIRA DAYEL AT THE CALDWELL GALLERY IN REDWOOD CITY. In this time when art museums and galleries are closed, Curator Boris Koodrin has assembled an art exhibition currently available for public viewing through Aug. 27 at the San Mateo County Superior Court building, 400 County Center in Redwood City. The exhibition title is “In the wrinkle of the crankle,” is comprised of works by San Mateo artist Elvira Dayel.
Dayel said, “In the times like these, when we all struggle for air, making art, is my oxygen. It's the breathing medium in which to exist. It's uncompromising & unapologetic. Life throws curve-balls and poses questions which my art-making tries to address, without ever fully answering them. It usually points me in a direction, gives a thread we follow... In my work it is usually the urban landscape that is deconstructed, flattened and re-assembled.”
Elvira Dayel was born in Ukraine, former Soviet Union. She was raised there and immigrated with her family to the United States in 1994, when she was 16 years old. Dayel has exhibited at Triton Museum of Art, Santa Clara, California; Maturango Museum Art Gallery, Ridgecrest, California; Marietta Cobb Museum of Art, Marietta, Georgia; San Francisco Zen Center; Long Beach Island Foundation of Arts & Sciences, Loveladies, New Jersey; Lincoln Center Art Gallery, Fort Collins, Colorado; LACDA, Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts; and Berkeley Art Center.
“In the wrinkle of the crankle,” is sponsored by the San Mateo County Arts Commission. Gallery hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For more information, visit at cmo.smcgov.org/arts-commission.
