Pun(c)ution gallery presents, new work by Ms. Mandilla !
(graphite on wood panel, 36" x 48")
"Embracing age in a world of botox and tummy tucks. I choose to dive deep into the wearing age as a chronicle of a lifetime. And question: when we re-make ourselves, are we revealing our true character, or are we stripping away our very identity?"
"While working on this series my curiosity grows every time I see someone wonderfully wrinkled with stories and those wrinkled with wisdom. I have a strong urge to hear the mystery's explained, I want to hear the conversations between those stiff wrinkles. In these portrait's I get to indulge in making up my own stories of each while confronting all the fears of aging."
Come out. Drink some drink. and Enjoy.
