Name: "Down the Rabbit Hole" Opening Reception at SPARC
Date: September 7, 2019
Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM PDT
Event Description:

 
We invite you to the opening reception of our upcoming exhibition
Down the Rabbit Hole on Saturday, September 7th from 2-4 PM.

Down the Rabbit Hole is a dynamic exhibition of drawings, photographs, and installations that explore gendered archetypes from a feminist perspective.

Symbolic language has the ability to express abstract ideas that are otherwise difficult to translate in direct, analytical speech or text.This language of images is felt more so than it is heard and honors the realm of instinct, dreams, and intuition. In this exhibition, I present three bodies of work that investigate this symbolic language through the lens of archetypes, dreams, and fairy tales. I invite you to participate in this language of images and insert yourself into the world of our untold narratives. -Mercedez Gertz, PhD

Mercedes Gertz works in Mexico City, California and Switzerland. Her interest in art as a language has informed her artistic practice and community work. Gertz currently has a PhD in the study of Depth Psychology. Her focus is on the study of dreams and fairytales as the symbolic language that articulates what words fail to express. Her paintings, conceptual installations, and graphic art have been exhibited in Mexico, the United States, and Europe.
