DESCRIPTION

Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to present ‘Mona’, an international group exhibition featuring contemporary adaptations of Da Vinci’s masterpiece, “Mona Lisa”. The Mona Lisa has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world." In this exhibition, a selection of international contemporary artists are taking on that tradition and re-creating the well-known masterpiece with their own artistic variations.

 

The Mona Lisa (La Gioconda or La Joconde) is a half-length portrait of a woman by the Italian artist Leonardo Da Vinci. The ambiguity of the subject's expression, which is frequently described as enigmatic, the monumentality of the composition, the subtle modeling of forms and the atmospheric illusionism were novel qualities that have contributed to the continuing fascination and study of the work. (Via Wikipedia)

 

Featuring artwork by Leilani Bustamante, Michael Cuffe, Lyrica Glory, Matthew J. Price, Nicomi Nix Turner, Brenton Bostwick, Christina Lank, Chelsea Brown, Amy Katherine Minchew, Lacey Bryant, Erica Calardo, Sharon Eisley, Monty Guy, Erich Josef Moffitt, Jane Kenoyer, JoKa, Paolo Petrangeli, Duma, Daisy Church, Cayetano Valenzuela, Emily Burns, Wendy Gadzuk, Donia, Joseph Murdach, Sea Monster, and Payazo.

 

The opening reception for "Mona”  will be held at Modern Eden Gallery on Saturday, July 20th from 6-10pm. Select featured artists will be in attendance at the reception. The exhibition will be on display through August 9, 2013 and is free and open to the public.
