Hey, Wow! The Art of Oded Halahmy
Selz Foundation Gallery
This exhibition features the mixed-media work of New York and Jaffa-based artist Oded Halahmy, an international artist with roots in Iraq and Israel. Halahmy’s lyrical sculptures span from expressive abstraction to simple but vivid figuration. His work reflects the rich, complex history of Jewish heritage in Babylonia, and celebrates the notion of homeland. Hey, Wow! explores themes originating in a popular Hebrew song written in Iraq. The artist riffs on Hebrew letter forms, blending the languages of modern artistic practice and of his ancient culture heritage.
