Emily Lowe Gallery
Body Mapping commemorates the opening of the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine at Hofstra University. The exhibition features works by four contemporary artists, Tina Blondell, Giedre Montvila, K.C. (Kaethe) Kauffman, and Eileen Senner, whose imagery deals with marking the human body. Each artist draws upon cultural and societal issues of body image and incorporates traditions such as Mehndi and ta moko practices of superimposing interlacing spiral markings on painted portraits in their work.
