(Los Angeles) - Edward Cella Art + Architecture is pleased to announce the exhibition: The Venus Paintings, by Mary Heebner. Heebner’s lush large format collages convey an emotive intensity and visual immediacy, inspired in part by the artist’s study of the Venus mythology across varied cultures, eras, and geographies. Heebner reimagines the myth’s expansive historical and cultural legacy by drawing from the evidence of existing fragments of classical and antique statuary. Materially rendered by the hand of a consummate paper maker with a unique mastery of aqueous pigment, the work explores themes of embodiment and femininity with a contemporary resonance that ultimately suggests the lasting poetic vitality of these vestiges of ancient civilizations.
