OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10,  6 - 9PM

Sla307 Art Space is pleased to announce a painting exhibition by Sandra Koponen entitled Life in The Big City. This is Koponen's first solo exhibition in New York City. The opening reception is Friday, November 10 from 6-9pm. 

Sandra Koponen states: 
I start paintings and come back to them in stages, applying the paint thickly and quickly. Similar to an ink block, the forms are imbedded, not readily apparent. They inspire a scene, painterly, not figurative.  Weathered barns, old trucks and worn objects have always intrigued me, and the paintings look as though they too are worn over time, gaining the solidity and heft of an artifact. I want to stimulate a synesthetic reaction, triggering aural and tactile hallucinations.

Ideally a painting serves as a talisman into a dream world.
