September 10, 2009 - September 26, 2009


Melissa Marks' work, Adventures of Volitia: Expulsion from Paradise, currently up at Bloomberg SPACE is inspiring, stunningly beautiful and well worth the visit. The sprawling color drawings pull the viewer around the space, their saturated colors and complex narrative elements provide an intensity and depth that pulls one in and won't let go.

Complementing these eleven power-filled drawings is a series of ceiling-height, black and white wall drawings, culminating in a 22-foot high, 43-foot wide epic. These drawings playfully entice you to follow their sinewy lines and unexpected turns. They are cool and subtle, yet seductive and assertive. The largest of these creates an ethereal space in which to contemplate Volitia's dilemma, passage, and eventual release. The show is up until September 26th, 2009.
