The Richard J. Massey Foundation for Arts and Sciences is supporting an elaborate 7-year international conceptual art project “Giverny: A Return to Women in Nature," which addresses the topic of women in nature throughout contemporary art and art history. The complex Giverny project is entirely under the direction of its conceptual creator, visual artist Tarra Bandet, who is overseeing all details. This multi faceted endeavor focuses on Tarra’s art performances, drawings, paintings, mixed media series, writing, curating and collaborations with other world-renowned artists such as Yigal Ozeri.

The entire "Revolution at Giverny: A Return to Women in Nature" project, connected lectures,  and symposium series will be beautifully documented in a book at the end of the project.

Primordial Illuminations of Arts and Science

Created by Visual Artist Tarra Bandet

This extensive 3-year commission project is an elaborate art piece created by visual artist Tarra Bandet that symbolically represents The Richard J. Massey Foundation for Arts and Sciences, New York. Please see additional information below for a more detailed description on this extraordinary artwork featuring approximately ONE MILLION pieces of glass, shells and other mixed media materials.

Visual Artist Tarra Bandet spent over 3 years working on the entire conceptual project, conducting research about the relationships between art and science, world history and art history, securing the final design and creating the final art work. Thousands of hours were spent formulating mixed media structures, hand cutting and placing glass, collecting symbolic objects and working them into sculptural and mixed media relief forms and painting.
