> DESCRIPTION

Austrian artist Mercedes Helnwein will showcase her darkly beautiful pencil drawings that are equal parts Tim Burton fairy tale, Cindy Sherman photograph, and girlish fantasy. The women in her offbeat vignettes are meticulously rendered and hopelessly engaging. Helnwein accessorizes her pretty protagonists with vintage kitchen utensils and plastic toys to create seemingly innocent narratives that quickly turn eerie thanks to anguished expressions and tense bodies.
