Marisa Bernotti's Dream Inspired Art on View in NYC Exhibition

Top Quote Marisa Bernotti extensive palette informs her works with joy and frivolity. Her large canvases, however, are anything but juvenile; there is a subtle understanding of human nature, of seeing a collective truth via these compelling figures. End Quote
  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) May 28, 2013 - Through details such as large ears that seem to hear, but perhaps do not listen, and eyes that look but may not see, Bernotti grasps the confusion inherent to our fast-paced society. Like Van Gogh or Picasso, she paints abstract figures who witness the world, and each other, with a skewed yet keen eye. And like her famous predecessors, Bernotti pursues her art for her own delight and profound need for expression.

    The artist's background in graphic arts is unmistakable in her colorful, linear oeuvre, while her flat tones are reminiscent of early twentieth century abstract artists. The works are inspired by dreams; she invigorates fantastical figures with their own life force, forcing the viewer to question their notions of reality. Drawing on her experiences of her native Uruguay, Bernotti creates paintings that are at once indigenous and universal.

    About the Exhibition
    June is an exciting month at Angora Gallery this year, with three memorable exhibitions to get the summer off to a great start. The Manifestation of Milieu shows artists taking the familiar and adding a sense of the unusual to it, with each work of art becoming a window into a world similar to ours, but where anything seems possible. In Pulse of Abstraction, a feeling of energy, movement and fulfilling life infuses the works, reaching out to touch the audience and encourage us to respond with courage and conviction. In Kaneko Johkoh's solo exhibition, thoughtful consideration merges with an attractively impulsive method to create Sumi ink paintings of power and potency. The exhibitions open on June 4, 2013 and continue until June 25, 2013, with an opening reception on the evening of Thursday, June 6, 2013. Entrance is free and art lovers are invited to attend and refresh themselves with inspiring, evocative art.
