“Contemporary Nostalgia” by Word To Mother Opening Reception at WYN 317

"Contemporary Nostalgia" by Word To Mother Opening Reception at WYN 317Friday, April 16, 6pm-9pm – Wyn 317 Art Gallery, 4320 Northwest 2nd Avenue, Miami Wynwood Arts District

Join WYN 317 for the debut of Contemporary Nostalgia. A collection of new works from England-based artist Word To Mother. The show features 30 reused framed vintage paper black and white illustrations of characters reminiscent of early animations from the 1930s and ’40s and a bronze statue that emits the positivity, kindness, and playfulness of life. Using paper from as early as 1890, Word To Mother continues his long-standing relationship with found and textured surfaces, each piece having its own beautifully unique aged patina. The marriage of classic characters on surfaces from the same era gives these new works a nostalgic feeling that perhaps they have existed for years and have just been discovered. Contemporary Nostalgia will be available for viewing through May 22.
