    About The Work

    This is an original gouache painting layered on an original inkjet print using alternative process photography. Image measures 8" x 8" on 11" x 8.5" paper. Ava Blitz uses digital technology as an experimental tool, the camera and the computer serving as a painterly and draftsman’s/printmakers instrument. Digital artifacts, halos, blurs, and pixels, considered to be mistakes, are used as part of Blitz's language. She often paints or draws into these images, creating a layering of process. The images recall conventions found in Eastern and Western imagery, from classical to popular culture. Each one takes its own intuitive path to completion, resulting in a new magical reality.

    This piece will be signed, titled, and dated on the front or back according to buyer's specifications.

    Ava Blitz is a visual artist who currently divides her time between studio work in sculpture, works on paper, photography, and public art. Blitz's public works and commissions are many, including installations at the Philadelphia International Airport and the University City Science Center, created under Philadelphia’s 1% for Art Programs, and as far away as Tokyo, Japan. Ava Blitz served on an International Sculpture Symposium panel in Japan, and has lectured on public art for the American Institute of Architects, the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, and the Michener Art Museum. She has been the recipient of numerous honors, awards, and fellowships, many of which have funded her public art projects. These include grants from the Japan Foundation, the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Leeway Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, and the Jerome Foundation. Blitz has shown locally at the Michener Art Museum, the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts, the Philadelphia Art Alliance, Grounds for Sculpture, the Noyes Museum, and the Allentown Art Museum. From 1986 to 1998 she taught at Bryn Mawr College, where she directed the fine art department.
