(SOLD WORK AVAILABLE FOR PICK UP/SHIPMENT ON AUGUST 2, 2015)
Birds represent, throughout history, in films, literature and mythologies, manifold versions of rebirth, happiness, fortune, journeys, peace, and the illumination of spirit. Their connectivity with the sky renders them a kind of mystical link between terra firma below and the seemingly limitless atmosphere above. Free to defy gravity, they are weightless and powerful, worthy of awe and fascination. Additionally, birds are our modern day dinosaurs and what’s more amazing than that?
For the month of July, we’re showing all kinds of awesome birds all over Nahcotta’s walls. The third solo show of the inimitable Matt Adrian (known by the self-appointed pseudonym The Mincing Mockingbird), brings more of his avian portraits representing birds in their glory and showcasing their very particular personalities - bold and brilliant parrots and conceited roosters to meditative, thoughtful snow owls, Adrian’s vivid and spectacular oil paintings “juxtapose the primal existence of birds with the often awkward folly of modern human existence.”
Join us in celebrating the opening reception of this magnificent show on Friday, July 3rd, from 5-8 PM!
