Gala event at October 30, Toronto 2014
Niron’s art moves in two planes – ecological and feminine. She principally focuses on community projects that are implemented in the public space, whereby she assimilates to those the above-mentioned values. Her works are generally marked by use of readymade material, or “capitalist trash” that makes up fertile ground for her work and for the single artist exhibitions she held at various museums. Into her conception that “there is a treasure in the trash” she embeds mystic, spiritual messages and contents, along with myths, drawing as she does on the principle of eco-philosophy and Mother Earth. The sensation of the sublime in nature found in her work thus amounts to paying tribute to its destination. He work carries with it a wealth of narratives that are found in the collective memory and rest upon the values of morality and beauty. It is her hope that her work of art will set in motion the rectification she wants to take place, which is to be based on positive thought, optimism and infinite hope.
