Based upon the mystical tarot, Julianna Menna’s divine new collection represents The Empress, The Emperor, The Fool, The Devil, Death, and The Priestess. Framed and painted on 24k gold leaf backgrounds to invoke their baroque quality, each of her subjects depict a paradoxical twist and novel presentation.
Conceived by a fascination with Catholic iconography, David Seidman’s new collection explores the book of Revelations and the significance of the number 7. For this series, Seidman called upon Joel-Peter Witkin for creative inspiration, and as a result pays homage to Witkin’s piece ‘Prudence’ with his own painting ‘The Witnesses’.
Delving into those memorable ‘first time experiences’ each artist travels into the degree of nuanced expression and mood for a diverse range of palettes and interpretative styles. This collection features new works from Heather McLean, Maj Askew, Sheri DeBow, Bao Pham, Erich J. Moffitt, Jana Brike, Lioba Brückner, Robert Kraiza, Rachael Bridge, Kindra Nikole, Jessica Dalva, Mark Elliott, and Reuben Negron.
