Never short on inspiration, @mesaartscenter and @thinkspace_art are proud to present @reerustart, Children of Divorce - a collection of carved wooden Ohlala sculptures.
"We humans have the same mold. We all have the same attributes. What differentiates us is the circumstances that we were born into. And one thing that I want to emphasize is the amount of detail each Ohlala artwork has. Like humans, some have little while some have more. In many of my works, I discreetly take on socio-economic classes. Some people are born rich, some are born middle class, some are born poor. But the common ground for everyone is, we all have to deal with it." - Reen Barrera.
This exhibition will be on view through January 15, 2023 in the Project Room. For all inquiries please contact the gallery via email at firstname.lastname@example.org

The power is in you (but sometimes you might need a little support 😂)!
Do you want to relax for a moment and refill your batteries? @nobodysausage’s characters are the right companions to escape reality with!
Standing like a rock, flowing with the wind: @luo_li_rong_art creates her whimsical sculptures inspired by Renaissance and Baroque artists, embracing graceful femininity and delicate drapery. A glimpse into another dimension!
Multidisciplinary artist @andydenzler and the oil painting ‘The Turquoise Room’ captivate the viewers with fantastic textures and an expressive colour application. Look closely at the surface and imagine Andy’s movement during the creation process… magical!
"This painting deals with the concept of looking within, forsaking the superficial, materialistic, “outer” - and drawing the attention to the “self”: the soul, the higher I within.
The eyes are hidden by natural, organic elements, flowers and butterflies signifying our connection with nature and the beauty and timelessness of the natural world. The eyes signify the windows to the soul, and as they are shielded from the outer world, they are forced to focus within, to a place where space and time are irrelevant, where all is one."
I love @ivanaoart's description of this mesmerising painting from her series “Inside, a Journey within”. The piece is oil on board (31cm x 23cm).
