SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Rebecca Camacho Presents announces its inaugural exhibition, a solo show of new work by Oakland-based artist Sahar Khoury.

Titled Holder , Khoury’s multi-media sculptures are armatures to house objects significant to the artists’ life - whether her own possessions or those pointing to others by whom she is inspired. With clear indications of hand and process reflected in the finished works, Khoury continues to create sculptures outside of structured methodology. Using materials such as ceramic, concrete, steel, paper-mâché, resin, cloth and leather to construct individual units that are puzzled and bolted together, the artist bypasses the traditional center of object making and inhabits a unique space that is aesthetically raw and purposefully unruly while also formally elegant, pure and emotionally beautiful.

With humor and intelligence, Khoury consistently infuses her practice with a larger social dialogue. Whether visible – the utilization of found or recycled objects to create recognizable cultural reference points; or discreet – the layering in of personal mementos, indistinguishable notations of time and place; Khoury’s works absorb the histories embedded in their discarded materials and reinvents them with new potential.

Recipient of the 2019 San Francisco Museum of Modern Art SECA Art Award, Khoury will exhibit at the museum from November 2019 through April 2020. She was also recently featured in the San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries Part and Parcel and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Bay Area Now 8 .
