"Mixed Realities," Ameera Kawash's latest exhibition at Artspace Hamra, showcases nine paintings and three installations combining realist figuration with modern technology. Blending techniques of collage, painting and animated graphics, Kawash's work is intended to be a commentary on the progress of art through technology, as well as a critique of society's growing dependence on technology.Kawash studied digital media and film before deciding to study figurative painting in Florence.One such work is "Heaps of History," which reinterprets "The Source" a painting by neoclassical painter Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres.Another classical symbol made contemporary can be found in Kawash's "Meta Data," a large monochrome painting, based on a bust of Socrates, with opalescent CDs for eyes, set against a binary code background.
