Moody Gallery presents Debra Barrera: "Menina" opening reception
Moody Gallery will host an exhibition of new work by Debra Barrera. "Menina" features photographs, drawings, and sculpture and marks her third exhibition with Moody Gallery since 2012.
"Menina" is a collection of works inspired by two rooms in the artist's childhood home: the formal living and dining room. These rooms were decorated by her mother and filled with opulence and ornamentation; paintings of faux Dutch still life, gold tassels hanging from lamp shades, and pistachio green velvet pillows. Rarely used, the rooms became monuments to lavish events that never took place and a stage set for far away places utopic and unattainable.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through May 13.
