"Mother's Little Angels" is an art exhibition of collaborative works by Noli Novak and George Cornwell. Opening reception is on May 11, 6PM at Space 42 Gallery in Jacksonville Florida. This event is free and open to the public.
The exhibit will feature portraits of 45 historic icons in their childhood. These are graphic illustrations printed on a variety of materials ranging from vintage fabrics to faux fur. The subjects are presented thru the perspective of a negative ambiance inviting the participation of patrons with interaction of their smartphones.
To encounter history’s villains in the innocence of life itself. As children.
Through our experiences, as artists in graphic illustration and fine art printing, we unveil the imagery of Mothers Little Angels before they grow to mankind’s despised plunderers.
While contradictions are abundant to the lives destroyed, when seen in childhood, the wholesomeness observed in these icons go without question.
Equally, we present inarguable figures, with those stereotypes they transcended, in both positive and negative portraiture. While using the unorthodox substrate of faux fur in black and white. And in the context of both childhood and adult.
In applying the convenience of today’s technology, we introduce an interactive approach to viewing the artwork. To provide a fresh twist in the experience itself.
Noli Novak is an editorial illustrator at the Wall Street Journal. George Cornwell is a fine art serigrapher formerly based in NYC.
