Stephanie Hirsch – Find Your Freedom


STEPHANIE HIRSCH
Find Your Freedom
November 10 – December 3, 2011
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds.” – Bob Marley
Stephanie Hirsch’s exhibition, Find Your Freedom, at Lyons Wier Gallery Project Space in New York City pays homage to the iconic punk rock albums of The Sex Pistols (Never Mind the Bullocks, Here Come The Sex Pistols), Pink Floyd (The Wall) and The Rolling Stones (Forty Licks.)
The artist appropriates these once iconoclastic images that have become somewhat commonplace fashion logos and re-infuses them with the anarchistic spirit from whence they came.
Through her use of beads, sequins and embroidery, Hirsch’s canvases are literally ‘illuminated’ with words of enlightenment and hope. Her simple text and quips often cause the viewer to question their moral standings and beliefs, all the while offering aesthetically charged images that are simultaneously foreign and familiar.
Hirsch states, “Mental and physical blockages in life are often self inflicted, both literally and figuratively. I explore my journey through life as a quest to uncover the truth around me and to express my position through the multifaceted meanings inherent to the words we use and actions we do.”
