Westport artist, Mercedes Arensberg will show her new series of paintings in Brooklyn New York 11205, at Pillow Independent Art Space. The title of the show: "You, Me, Her, Him" opens Friday March 7th. The paintings are depicted in Arensberg's characteristic bold, post-modern style; a style which captures attention instantaneously and is meant to convey a thought or feeling without build up.
"We have the grand opportunity to decide to embrace the light and dark inside and in so doing bring a fusion of polarities; like those that exist between religions and cultures. The point is to endeavor to bridge the divide in the most intimate, individual way. This is giving birth to forgiveness and peace." " As well as becoming aware that within each of us exists the other" Arensberg's desire and motivation is to simply and boldly express her belief in the possibility of a fresh start for all humankind.
Opening reception will be held on Friday March 7th, 2008 from 5pm to 8pm, 505 Myrtle Avenue in NYC, between Grand and Ryerson. Work will be up through April 4th.
