Evaluation, works by Rebecca Memoli
from the artist - "Influenced by Dutch Golden Age still life, Evaluation is a visual meditation on an emotional state or situation in my life. Although still-lifes are traditionally created void of narrative, these pieces infer a subtle narrative using everyday objects. Often dirty, used, dank, or broken, the objects resonate with emotion and history. The combination of photography and painting allows these mundane objects to be romanticized, giving them a radiance that did not originally exist. Although the symbolism is personal, the emotions associated with these works are not uniquely mine. In sharing my dark thoughts and desperate times I hope to connect with my viewers and perhaps gain insight into my pain and begin healing."
Evaluation, works by Rebecca Memoli will be on view March 5 - April 30, 2012.
The opening event will be held Wednesday March 7th, 2012 at 5pm at the Mulberry Street Library. All are welcome to attend.
