I Want to be Adored

Artist: Serena Cole
Gallery: Triple Base
Opening Reception: November 6, from 7-10pm
Exhibition Dates: November 6 - December 20, 2009

Cole conceived of I Wanna be Adored eight months ago and has spent the time leading up to the show creating her most large-scale work to date. The artist’s iconic figures are exquisitely rendered yet often dark and haunting, leaving the viewer to question what is missing or wrong. Lurking below the eloquent exterior of her sacred women is often a sense of desperation - revealed through dark sunken eyes, parched lips, an empty gaze or posture.
