"World on a Wire”
New Works by Tanja Meski
Wed., October 5 through Sun., October 30
Opening Reception -- Friday, October 7, 6 - 8 pm
"World On A Wire" presents new works by emerging artist Tanja Meski. Meski was born in Finland, and currently divides her time between the United States, Italy and Finland. The show continues a theme she started when exhibiting in a Group Show at Foundry Gallery in February 2011. In that exhibit, she presented a piece called "Ocean on a Wire" referring to the Gulf oil spill that occurred in 2010. That piece was intended to critique the slow bureaucratic processes related to the well-being of international waters. Meski, along with millions of observers, was stunned by the unwillingness of U.S. authorities to sacrifice assets and manpower toward immediate rescue operations.
All of Meski’s works in the October show are inspired by current global events. The show is a collection of mixed media art on canvas, combining driftwood, shells and other objects collected from various sea shores of the United States. www.foundrygallery.org
