ABOUT THIS ART:
This November, 323East Gallery will once again host Glass, Cinder & Thorns. The all-women, fairy-tale inspired group exhibition features over 20 new pieces from some of today's best female artists curated by April Segedi.

"As children, our parents often read us bedtime stories of Little Mermaids, Sleeping Beauties, and Little Red Riding Hoods. However, these seemingly innocent stories often had evil lurking within their pages. The more we age, the more we realize how wonderful being an innocent child can sometimes be as we lose ourselves in fantasies of white horses, magic, and dazzling princesses. What Disney failed to mention is that the mermaid dies, multiple suitors defiled Sleeping Beauty, and the wolf ate grandma. Horrible things happen everyday and we all sometimes wish for a place and time where life is simpler and better. We find ourselves yearning for the warmth of our childhood beds, the calming voice of our parents, and the journey back to that enchanted world. Yet we must remember that even in fairylands of beauty and glitter, evil things creep about in false glamours. It may be the evil witch living in the gingerbread house or a beautiful sea nymph singing you into your watery grave." - April Segedi

This RUN comes signed by the artist along with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 323East Gallery and 1xRUN.

ABOUT Maria Finna:
Maria Finna work explores femininity, through psychedelia and surrealism as well as themes of intuition, fertility and the sensitive relationship of the female psyche to nature. Her characters are often anthropomorphic embodiments of natural, physical and esoteric concepts and entities. Through her creative process she shapes abstract and esoteric ideas and beings into living, visceral forms.

Throughout her work, Maria engages with wordplay to form narrative syntheses and bring new characters and worlds into being. She connects disparate objects through word association, fusing high-art aesthetics with a low-brow sensibility towards language. She challenges the conventional conceptual approach to art expounding, a visceral, expressive form of surrealism that eschews pretension and illusory cleverness for originality, substance, and heart.

Maria’s work re appropriates pop culture icons, transplanting familiar characters and stories into psychedelic and surreal states and scenarios and augmenting the inherent surreality and absurdity of pop-culture. She takes inspiration from a range of sources, from traditional children’s illustrations and fantasy, to 80's animation and Kawaii culture. Her oeuvre forms an eclectic pastiche, spanning from saccharine psychedelia to muted, ethereal strangeness.
