Celebrating Memory of David Lang

David Lang

(July 12, 1941 – November 8, 2017)

Our hearts are broken for the sudden loss of David Lang. His legacy will live on long beyond him, most notably in the form of his paintings and incredibly intricate and captivating kinetic sculptures. Like them, David was always in motion as a maker of amazing things.

We feel in these that the momentum of his life and work lives on even now, in its ability to move us to powerful emotion. It is said that in sharing a sadness, it is diminished by half, but through sharing a happiness, one doubles it. We know that David’s loss is shared by all those who knew him and his work, yet we take great comfort in and celebrate the ways they made the world a better and more interesting place.

Yes, our hearts may be broken, yet both halves are filled to overflowing with the love and gratitude for having known him.

Farewell David, you will be remembered and missed…

Chaya Mallavaram

Uni-T

Chaya Mallavaram is a modern impressionist and abstract painter who lives in Massachusetts. Inspired by the works of Monet, Van Gogh and the colors from India where she grew up, Chaya combines vibrant colors and bold textures in her paintings that lets viewers escape into places that are magical and uplifting. When painting, Chaya lets her emotions and intuition guide her through the process that takes her into a calming place. “I love that happy place and that’s where the magic happens”. Chaya uses pallet knives, her fingers, brushes and other objects she feels fit while painting. “It’s exciting to explore new ways to paint. Art is a journey for me and I can’t wait to see where it takes me!”

The Dress Project

The dress form is Virginia's symbol for our essential being, our core. using this emblem, her work speaks about the power of relationships and the politics of relationships; our relationship to ourselves, to each other and to the world in which we live. the work speaks to the emotional or lack of emotional connection between people. 

The dress form denotes the body - how we relate to our own body, how we relate to other’s bodies, how we cover our bodies and present our bodies, and how that veneer affects all our experiences and encounters. i deal with the ideas of fertility, fragility, strength, waste, war, imprisonment and freedoms. my work ignites viewers to reconsider their place in our society and culture, to question the status quo.

The dress project is relevant to the current issues being debated today. the dress is Virginia's soapbox from where She can engage in political debate, question social protocol, and express her authentic self.  using different media and scale the work touches many people regardless of gender, age, background and experiences. She strives to create for them a safe place in which to reconsider their place in the world.

The dress project has brought Virginia to a deeper and more determined desire to create. Her dresses have shown her the power of art - how art can touch people, move people; help people to reach a deeper place in themselves. She has been blessed with the opportunity to witness people become physically moved when interacting with her work. the dress project has given Virginia the occasion to challenge her technical skills, and pushed her out of her comfort zone, tackling many different types of visual arts; performance, installation, photography, sculpture and mixed media. all of these media are integral to the vision of my work. the dress project has also given her the opportunity to teach, lecture and lead workshops, allowing Virginia's enthusiasm to reach people in a more active manner.

Torqued and Tethered . . .

This is part of Virginia Fitzgerald’s dress project. The bodice is stunted, emaciated, twisted and tortured. The sculpture hangs by only one of the shoulder straps, the other strap sags, defeated, exhausted. The way the bodice hangs forces the viewer to see in, under and through her; all is exposed. Being white, there is the suggestion of seeing bone. All she really wants to do is to fly, to be free…

It addresses the omnipresent and destructive messages directed at young girls and women from the media, society, most religions and possibly from their own family. The sculpture is white to reference the many cultural traditions where a girl or woman wears white to show that they are pure, good, respectable and virtuous. For me, the sculpture represents an innocent young spirit who has been pinned down by rules, expectations, dogma and traditions and who has twisted and tortured herself trying to free herself, a spirit that just wants to be who she authentically is; she just wants to soar!!!
— Virginia Fitzgerald

Torqued and Tethered... was first exhibited at 'breaking open...' in 2013, at Fountain Street Fine Arts, Framingham, MA.  It was during that exhibition that Fitzgerald was nearing the end of a long and intense divorce process and was feeling very burned by the excepted and traditional roles for a woman.  Since that first installment, when the sculpture has been exhibited not all the ribbons have been held down or trapped, reflecting hope and new strength.  In this current state of the installation, with  some of the ribbons free and some still trapped, reflects the truths of women's rights in general. There have been some advances but there still remains a great struggle.
