At the Javits Center, Helene Mukhtar will present work completed in 2011.
Unlike her previous mixed-media work, these latest pieces concentrate on the acrylic paint medium and explore textures, brush strokes and paint thickness combined with an energetic and pulsating color palette.
In this work she is striving to reconnect with the spontaneity and freedom of her inner child while celebrating the resilience and strength of the human spirit. Her cheerful, cartoon-style characters and animal figures inject humor into her work while bright and muscular colors associated with a fearless painting style create dramatic impact.
Born in France and living in Brooklyn, Helene Mukhtar’s work has been exhibited in the United States and France. Recent solo shows include the 440 Gallery in Brooklyn, Galerie ArtSud in France and Ion Studio in Soho.
