Mirabeau Gallery presents Deasa Turner: "Enchanted Scenes & Assemblage Themes" opening reception
Mirabeau Gallery will premiere "Enchanted Scenes & Assemblage Themes," a collection of works by local artist Deasa Turner. Working through the mediums of collage and assemblage, Turner specializes in a particular art form called transmogrification in which she dramatically transforms, alters, or destroys an object and then reconstructs it into a transcendent, altered state - projecting her past and present experiences and interpretations of them into the three-dimensional atmosphere that solidifies their tangibility. Whether a repurposed burned violin or a child's toy purchased at a yard sale, her works and their constituent parts fluster and prod the viewer to question, to insight, and to wonder.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until March 17.
