Magdalena Elias
Magda Elias is presenting a series of “gobelins,” or rug wall-hangings, constructed of wool and acrylic. She draws inspiration for these unique and often whimsical latch-hook rugs from her environment and from the masterpieces of art history. As an avid museum-goer, she likes to re-imagine paintings and sculptures to fit her aesthetic. In the well-known tradition of artists reinterpreting their predecessors’ work, Elias takes well-known pieces and makes them her own. Elias says, “For the artist, the practice of reconfiguration is fluid and emancipatory, always respectful of previous masters’ interpretive arrangements, yet incessantly in pursuit of a new one that is rebelliously “I”-centric.”
