Two Exhibitions - DAVID SLATER & AMY ZERNER - 27 East


27East / Events / 1830034



MM Fine Art is pleased to present two exhibitions “David Slater: Survey” and “Amy Zerner: Tapestries, Collage & Art Couture”. Both exhibitions open on Saturday, November 6 with a reception from 5 to 7 PM.

David Slater is known for his mixed media canvases, suffused with vivid imagery and bright colors. Each painting is a virtual kaleidoscope of symbols, dreams, memories, and religious beliefs. And each tells a story.

​The origins of Slater’s current work evolved in the 1960s when he first transitioned into creating narrative paintings. Prior to the 60s, he had painted in an abstract expressionist style, but after being inspired by DeKooning’s Woman series, he soon discovered he could switch to working in a figurative style using an abstract form. The style that Slater developed in the 60s and 70s provides a direct link to his current work.

David Slater was born and raised in Massapequa, NY. As a young man he taught art in the United States and England, where he notes an influence from British pop art. He earned a Master’s degree from Rhode Island School of Design, where he also taught for several years. He has spent much of his life traveling, seeking knowledge and adventure. The long reaching influences of those experiences continue to find their way into his work.

Multi-disciplinary artist Amy Zerner’s work, ancient as well as modern in its cross-cultural sweep, is ultimately a sacred art. Each of her enchanted worlds – her NEA award-winning mixed-media tapestries, works on paper, and Art Couture – show humans, celestial beings and animals harmoniously integrated together and into inventive representations of forces and energies that surround, protect and nurture all of us.

Zerner’s gift for re-imagining materials of all kinds empowers her to create surreal, opulent works filled with meaning, serendipitous transmutations and interconnections. Each of her masterful collages is a protective talisman, an entryway into mystical realms of archetypal and metaphysical symbolism.

The artist and her husband Monte Farber are authors of many bestselling mind/body/spirit books. THE WILD GODDESS ORACLE was just released and ENCHANTED WORLDS: The Visionary Collages and Art Couture of Amy Zerner comes out in November. Original and inspiring, this exploration of Amy’s Art and Fashion with 323 color plates delves deeply into her intuitive and creative alchemy. They will be signing books in the gallery on Sunday, November 21, 3 to 5 PM.
