Rotem Reshef-7590 copy.jpg


California Dreaming

"With 'Vista,' Rotem Reshef portrays Bakersfield – from the inside out. Reshef does not simply look at the city, she re-embodies its salience. 'Vista' brings forth the inner dynamic of a municipality that encompasses and embraces both nature and industry, a town in which extractive commerce is integral to the ecosphere. Reshef does not judge this reality, but recapitulates it, presenting – re-presenting -- its bifurcated but intertwined material dynamic as a physical presence, a textured form whose uncanny syncresis can be physically conjured through aesthetic investigation – and vice versa."*
