Glowlab Announces Between the Lines in Minowa, a Solo Exhibition by Artist Roberto Mollá 

New York, NY (April 25, 2009) – Glowlab is pleased to present Between the Lines in Minowa, a 

solo exhibition by Spanish artist Roberto Mollá featuring a dozen new works on grid-paper and a large-scale wall-drawing. Glowlab will host a reception for the artist on Thursday, May 7th from 7 to 9pm. 

Mollá’s captivating new body of work samples from a variety of cultures to depict a strange and beautiful “floating” world reminiscent of the ukiyo-e genre of Japanese paintings and prints. The subject of these traditional scenes was city life, specifically activities from the entertainment district of Minowa. In Mollá’s modern day ukiyo-e, sinewy koi fish mingle with reclining geisha courtesans and manga characters within labyrinths of folding screens, simultaneously inviting and obscuring the viewer’s gaze.
