On Friday, March 4, 2016, Arch Enemy Arts presents the opening of two exquisite exhibitions for a night sure to shine. Celebrating Hanna Jaeun‘s solo ‘On Borrowed Time’ alongside group exhibition ‘The Way We Rust’, these new collections of work invite a virtually tangible sense of contemporary surrealism and portraiture as though a talisman to each participating artist.
From animal and human hybrids to musings of adoration and lust, this special evening will undoubtedly propel viewers through the precipice of raw imagination.

‘On Borrowed Time’ is the first AEA feature for Brooklyn-Based pop-surrealist painter, Hanna Jaeun. Hanna’s newest collection focuses on the notion of living beyond the time where you were expected to die, and Hanna’s efforts perfectly reveal a beautiful yet sorrowful face of the journey to the other side. Filled with clever suggestions that her characters are parting with the world and without making the subject of death too obvious, Hanna’s animal and human hybrids ultimately show that in the end we are all, whether human or animal, here on earth for only a short period of time.
‘The Way We Rust’, a group exhibition showcasing the work of 16 artists. Each piece is inspired and tied to a song, which the artist chose to represent as an individual and personal reflection of lust, love, or heartbreak. The dynamic playlist of music ranges from Chelsea Wolfe and The Magnetic Fields to The Shins and Elvis Presley.
Naoto Hattori, Richard J Oliver, Caitlin Hackett, Julie Filipenko, Craww, Alex Garant, Kaspian Shore, Paul Romano, Gretchen Lewis, Robert Kraiza, Rachael Bridge, 64 Colors, Veks Van Hillik, Kindra Nikole, Erich J Moffitt, and Susanne Apgar.
