Artist Info

Batya is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York City. Her work has been internationally exhibited in galleries and museums that include the Museum of Modern Art of Taluca, Mexico and the Haun Tie Art Museum in Beijing, China. Batya’s work has appeared in a variety of publications including Forbes, MIT Technology Review, Wired, Studio Visit Spring 2012 and the international luxury annual magazine VIEWS 2012. The painting series “Landscapes for Humanity” were exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum of Jewish Art. She has been included in the Computer Art Congress and has published in the Europia Productions journal. Her “Infinite Flux” series was on view in August 2012 at the Martine Chaisson Gallery in New Orleans.

Batya’s work is informed by the aesthetic, history and the changing socio-poltical attitudes that are connected to the middle eastern landscape of her early childhood and growing up in New York City. Batya’s conceptual ideas include notions of displacement, mortality and the fragmentation of society, cultures and identity in the age of remote image consumption. Combining a narrative approach while maintaining a dialogue with the tradition of image-making expresses a yearning for meaningful grasp of the ambiguous relationship between “illusion” and what we call “truth.
