"Tomb dancer," mixed media on board, 30 x 22 inches
For this exhibition, artist Irina Sheynfeld created a body of work that deals with the topics of entropy and chaos. Most of the paintings are meditations on topics of pollution and total destruction of nature. Ecological disaster that can be witnessed everywhere on the planet is central to her work. What will happen when nature finally rebels and strikes back in a conscious way? Will certain zones of self-aware vegetation suddenly form, a place where people will not be welcome any more? Will plants, sea-creatures, animals and the earth itself try to re-absorb us and return us to our primordial beginning? What will they keep from our world and what will that strange new land look like past the age of Anthropocene
Irina Sheynfeld received multiple awards and grants including COJECO Blueprint fellowship for her work and was written about in several publications (Forward, WhiteHot Magazine). For the past two years Sheynfeld has been a Sing for Hope artist, painting pianos that were exhibited on the streets of New York City.

"Windows on Wall," lithograph, 2017s
Ceres Gallery is pleased to present View Collection III, an exhibition of colorful printmaking lithographs by Minako Ito. Itouses printmaking as a visual journal. The lovely colors and the tranquility of her subjects suggest spirits of harmony and joy. She rarely draws people in her interior scenes or landscapes however the sense of inhabitants are everywhere. Her lithographs are invitations to share Ito’s abundant pleasure in the daily scenes.
View Collection III will include 20 lithographs. A key element is the window. In Windows on Wall she made a patchwork of construction site walls. She captures the lively essence of town, landscape and daily scenes with her keen observation. By sharing these lively and cheerful images of New York City, her current neighborhood in Tokyo, and Paris, she transforms the viewer from a wary passerby to a welcomed friend.
Ito studied art in Tokyo and New York City, is currently living and working in Tokyo. Her work is represented in many private collections and is included in the collections of the New York Public Library. She has appeared in many group shows in New York City, Seoul, Tokyo and, Yokohama.
