Natural Scenery

New group show at Prime Gallery looks at the natural world and the cerebral

Prime Gallery’s Stripped opens this Friday, Jan. 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. The group exhibition, featuring four artists, focuses on collage to evoke the relationship between the natural world and the cerebral.

The show features the works of Raisa Nosova, Kat Block, Tali Rose, CutPasteFace, whose art takes a twist on nature in scenery or nude figures, with each piece a story of change, growth, and exploration. The exhibit is guest curated by Curate NJ’s Tess Hansen. This is her first time curating an art show.

Kat Block’s inspirations for her work are nature and music. Her recent pieces are mixed media collages that use various papers, watercolors, photography, and graphite. While deciding upon a graduate school program, she attended the Visual Art Center of New Jersey. Within one year, she was selling her artwork and eventually invited to join the faculty there. She also attended the duCret School of Art, where she currently teaches.

CutPasteFace is the pseudonym used by Kiki Buccini for her collages. Buccini is a Jersey City based collage artist who has shown at several art galleries over the past 5 years, including Smush Gallery, Raven Art Gallery and Boutique, The Scandinavian Collage Museum, and Jersey City’s Art and Studio Tour at Lackawanna Center. With an interest in how and why people from around the world are drawn to New York City, her work looks at the human experience, the solitary paths we take, and the commonality in the struggles and challenges we face.

Russian born artist Raisa Nosova explores nostalgia, interruption, and destruction in her work. While known as a painter, Nosova has recently tried her hand in new mediums such as glass sculpture and performance art after she became a mother. In 2021, she received her MFA degree from New York University, where she has been an adjunct painting professor.

Tali Rose Krupkin is an Israeli American artist based in Jersey City who transforms upcycled materials to create her analog collages, giving the imagery new life, and sometimes parodies societal themes depicted in consumerism and pop culture. Her inspiration comes from her own experiences and how they relate to feminism, spirituality, and nature. Her recent collection of work pays tribute to women reclaiming their voices to oppose societal pressures of objectification and expected domesticity.
