Copro Gallery presents the art exhibition Immaculate Deception featuring the works of two female artists "Genevive Zacconi" and "Ewelina". Both artists have a different perception of the theme and have worked separately but will be exhibited together in this Epic Show.
"Working within the context of the exhibition title, Immaculate Deception, I've taken both themes of betrayal, and aspects within theology and integrated them into my own art. Believing that religion is a product of human imagination, I feel as though this complex explanation for existence is representative of the psyche of the greater whole of humanity, aside from religious sect; the motifs within the imagery & parable being inherent aspects of all of human life. I've therefore tried to take the topics that have stood out to me, through my Catholic upbringing, and apply them to broader issues in modern times. Human suffering, martyrdom, self-imposed victimization, and sacrifice being some of the subjects that have particularly caught my attention and which I see as having risen to the surface of my work within this show."
For many months now the portals of my canvas have been channeling the incantations of an ancient fairy tale which lives ever present in the hearts of modern man. Step inside the canvas and be welcomed to the world of Immaculate Deception…
Ewelina was born in Wroclaw Poland in 1981. Her family immigrated to the United States when she was just 3 years of age, making their home in Mahwah New Jersey. From time immemorial, equipped with her trusty pencil, she has filled her sketchbooks with images flowing from the unconscious, creating worlds of infinite possibility. After Graduating from Columbus College of Art and Design in 2003, she began to explore her own spiritual journey through life with painting. She has shown her paintings in galleries from coast to coast. Based in New York City, Ewelina continues to chronicle her personal evolution on paper and canvas.
