AXS Art presents its latest exhibit – ‘Embodied: Self Focus’ curated by Evan Taylor, featuring artists (Ms.) Rawan Rajab and (Mr.) Jean Paul Vivas. The show illustrates how both artists use the human body as a vehicle to react to social constraints, for self-expression and to analyze their experiences. An Opening Reception be held November 14, 2019 from 6-8pm with proceeds to benefit No More Tears USA in Miami which assists victims of human trafficking and domestic violence.

Born in Saudi Arabia, Rawan is intently focused on the how societal expectations of women effect the female identity. In her wirework collection, she examines the physical constraints of society on women. She conceptualizes clothing and the visual manifestation of the female body by Western and Middle Eastern societies.

A native of Venezuela, Jean’s work expresses his own experience living in the impersonal 21st century. The pressures of modern society to create and perform play a critical role in how Jean views the world. Through and because of these societal pressures, Jean has internalized ‘an obsession’ with attaining perfection through an artistic exercise he relies upon to escape conformity.

Embodied: Self Focus will be on display by appointment only from 11-14-19 to 1-31-20. To RSVP, email: rsvp@axslawgroup.com. For more information or to schedule a viewing, call 305-297-1878 or email: info@axslawgroup.com
