Handiedan presents Sirenum Scopuli at Phone Booth Gallery
Phone Booth Gallery is proud to present "Sirenum Scopuli," a solo exhibition of fifteen mixed media works by the Amsterdam based artist HANDIEDAN.
"Sirenum Scopuli" is a unique collection of classic pinup influenced cut-and-paste delicacies wrapped in contemporary antiquity. Using yellowed sheet music, old fashioned playing cards, pinups, and a playful mixture of filigree and doodles, she creates a newfangled amalgamation of imagery. Exploring many concepts such as temptation,beauty, and deceit, it is by no coincidence that the show's title is drawn straight from Winslow Homer's "The Odyssey." Surrounded by vintage salon seats adorned with hooded hair dryers,
Salon Pop and Barber Shop in Long Beach provides the setting for the evening's events. A stripped awning out front, throwback green/blue paint on the inside and a soundtrack of 60's and 70's rarities is sure to attract an inquisitive mind.
The exhibit will run from November 29, 2008 to December 31, 2008 at www.phoneboothgallery.com and the opening party will be held on November 29 from 7pm-10pm. The All
Ages event will be located at Salon Pop and Barber Shop, 1085 Redondo
Ave., Long Beach, CA 90804, www.salonpopandbarbershop.com.
