Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to present ‘Mona’, an international group exhibition featuring contemporary adaptations of Da Vinci’s masterpiece, “Mona Lisa”. The Mona Lisa has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world." In this exhibition contemporary artists from all over the world are taking on that tradition and re-creating the well-known masterpiece with their own artistic variations.
“Right now in the series I am working on I am exploring ideas about death, magic, and storytelling in America. My paintings depict figures against the backdrop of a stark quintessentially American landscape or darkened rooms that conjure the mysterious.
Whether it be heightened euphoria, a darkened sense of foreboding, sublime twilight, or an interpretation of the miraculous, real, or imagined, I seek to analyze the borderland between the old world of myth and the modern world of science.
The anachronistic space where the inexplicable and the fable are in discord with contemporary ideologies is a frontier that is narrowing in modern America.” ~Cayetano G. Valenzuela
