Dorothy Circus Gallery is proud to present Tara Mcpherson’s First Solo Show in Rome, which will be displayed from the next June 11th 2015 till September 26th in the Gallery’s Red Hall. The american artist Tara Mcpherson is one of the most impressive and original female artist from the “pop surrealism” art movement, a true prime mover and master of the contaminated technique generated by the mix of the most refined illustration skills with the most patient and expert oil painting study. Since 2006 McPherson is a resident artist of Jonathan Levine Gallery and a leading artist of contemporary art magazine Juxtapoz.
“I Know it By Heart” is the title choosed by the artist for her first italian solo exhibition, which will feature the artwork created and exhibited for “Scope Art Fair” exhibition in Miami: the “Quantum Dancer”. This amazing oil on board painting represents the “female divinity”, an ethereal and mystical figure, which symbolizes the power of creation and destruction. McPherson’s new body of work will turn out all the contents of the artist iconography with a newfound vision of Love and Creation that comes from the artist personal life experience of becoming a mother.
The Girl With No Heart, Orion, was born as a female figure with a heart-shaped void in her torso to represent resilience and strength not like a victim but as a beacon of light.
McPherson emotional totems are giving the proper room to breathe, telling stories on outer space, or moving her frame of reference to the underwater depths, they always offer a romantic and spiritual vision of loneliness and void, depicted as vast and unknown environs, where all the reflections of ourselves can live in harmony, extending their hands to other dreamers and feel a cosmic energy passing as a Mantra through that empy-shaped hearts briding the lonely gaps of imagination. Now, with another surprising and charming color palette ,this female icon will move us and guide us through an unseen constellation of feelings and emotions.
The show will present 8 brand new pieces, created during the artist residency in Rome, and a large selection of the most representative rock posters illustrated by the artist as the ones shen made for artists such as Death Cab for Cutie, the Melvins, Beck, Franz Ferdinand…and many more.
During her stay in Rome, Tara McPherson will paint her first mural project in a very central area of the City, and her work will be included in the social activism releted street art project “Spray 4 your Rights”.
