The Loft at Liz’s presents “Memphis de la Lumière, a study of sculptural light and stained glass created by Moroccan-born Artist Simon Edery. The exhibition runs through Jan. 24, 2023.
Edery’s sculptures and stained glass pieces are created in the spirit of Memphis, an International Art and Design Movement of the 1980s characterized by bright colors, abstract design and bold forms. A sculpture turned into a light stand or a painting turned into a rainbow of color in glass — to Edery, Memphis has always been a source of life through its color and free form.
Edery, an avant-garde artist, studied film and sculpture at the San Francisco Art Institute where he earned a Master of Fine Art degree and taught for many years before moving to Los Angeles to continue his artistic endeavors. As a Renaissance man, he has directed, written, produced and performed in films as well as multi-screen-performances, while continuing his work in mixed media such as stained glass, metal and photography.
