About this Exhibit:
CELEBRATING THE GODDESS – By Denise Adler
Celebrating The Goddess by Denise Adler is inspired by myths, legends, symbolism, and the events of the world. Using paint, print media of current events and discarded found objects like trash, string, and plastic, she creates portraits and dreamscapes that reflect her empathetic and apprehensive reaction to the world around her. These personal and thoughtful pieces memorialize a moment in time and share a vision of something more sensible and beautiful.
About the Artist:
NYC based mixed media collage artist Denise Adler studied with feminist artist Juanita McNeely in the 70’s when she attended Suffolk Community College. She then moved on to Buffalo State University where she studied printmaking arts. After graduating from Hofstra University with a degree in Fine Arts and design, Adler published the book “Parallel Spell: 7 pictures 7 poems” in collaboration with the poet and writer Elena Alexander. In addition to being a founding member of Cultural Guerrillas group with artist Mary Jones, she is also a founding member of ArtSpeak Collective, a virtual gallery platform for artists established during the pandemic. This led to the establishment to an actual artist-run gallery on W27th St. in Chelsea, NYC, called Pictor Gallery.
“I am an artist because I have always loved the process of creating,” Ms. Adler. Having grown up drawing, painting and taking pictures, she taps into her imagination to solve visual problems: “It’s what makes me happy.” Her mixed media work often takes the form of drawing, painting and collage. Magazines, photographs, trash and found materials factor into the artist’s otherworldly portraits and dreamscapes. Mythology, legends and symbols inspire the creative process as well as emotional stimulus, whether that be empathy, apprehension or disbelief. Adler explores multifaceted connections between the internal, external and virtual realms; ultimately, distilling her visions “into hybrid creations that illustrate my sense of our collective human experience.” Currently, she shares a proper studio space in Chelsea and is working on an ongoing series of dreamscapes about aspects of her life and the Goddess series. “I am always working at expanding my work to incorporate a more ethereal sensibility,” says Adler, who also names getting “lost” and discovering “solutions in that vulnerability” as a primary process related to her work.
Main Street Pops has partnered with Pilsener Haus & Biergarten to bring a series of Pop up Arts Events to Hoboken, NJ.
