EXIT DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE BY JUAN MUNIZ
Opening: Sat, June 15th, 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Exhibition: June 15 － July 12th, 2013
“Say it simple, mean it deep” is one of the primary goals of Juan Muniz's work. His painting's feature cartoon-like characters wrestling with modern life. The primary character Juan paints, 'Felipe', is neither male nor female and is often shown wearing a rabbit suit and a mask. Juan states, "We often wear a second skin in daily life or at work and the 'skin' doesn't reveal much of our true self." The 'mask' he draws is a blank stare and depending on the situation, can convey humor, doubt or irony. Despite being rendered simply, Juan's work covers the whole range of human emotion and elicits a deep response.
