iArt-4 is a group of New York-based artists, founded by Helene Mukhtar and Steve Zolin (2 FSU MFA alums), whose work reflects New York City cutting edge culture and the eclecticism of contemporary art. Their work embraces a wide range of media, from painting and photography to animation and installation. At the fountain Art fair, iArt-4 presents the latest work of its three founding members.
Robin Noble-Zolin is a NYSCA winning photographer whose take on city life discovers moments of urban still life amidst the bustle. As a recognition of her work on the changing face of Times Square, The Times Square Visitor’s Center features one of her photographs in its orientation video. Noble-Zolin’s photography is also included in the reoccurring exhibit, “Here is New York.”
Helene Mukhtar’s paintings celebrate the human spirit and life in all its forms. Her preference for vibrant colors is rooted in her youth spent in the Mediterranean sun. She uses minimal, simple shapes and her paintings style is spontaneous and expressionist. Inspired by cartoons, street art and medieval bestiaries, her paintings are animated with line drawings, symbols, collage, animal and human forms.
Steve Zolin’s art evolves like a living thing. His swirling human figures have transformed over time into abstract rhythms. With a strong interest in curved perspective, he explores the structure of space itself, which he sees as an infinite whirling machine. He exhibits regularly in New York and abroad.
