Oded Halahmy: Babylonian Odyssey

April 6, 2017 - February 12, 2018 - Mr. and Mrs. Chesley G. Magruder Gallery I

Oded Halahmy’s lyrical bronze sculptures pay homage to his Iraqi roots and his long career as a successful contemporary sculptor based in New York City. Halahmy’s sculptures are part of several important collections, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, as well as other public and private collections worldwide.

Babylonian Odyssey presents recent sculptures that reference many elements of Middle Eastern landscape and reflect the hieratic qualities of ancient Mesopotamian art. These sculptures seem to dance with playful combinations of images, such as palm trees, female figures, pomegranates and cresent moons. Halahmy sees these as universal symbols  representing the life affirming qualities of joy, love and spituality.
