“The Artist Need Not Suffer”
January 6 – 27, 2017
First Friday Opening Reception: Friday, January 6, 7pm – 10pm
Space 1026 is excited to present a solo exhibition of Marissa Paternoster’s artwork!
Marissa Paternoster was born very small in Elizabeth, NJ. She grew slightly larger over the ensuing years, during which she went to college in a drug haze, learned guitar strums, ate many eggs (not all at once), and finally moved in with wonderful friends and a perfect dog in Philadelphia.
With these works she asks, “WHY MUST THE ARTIST SUFFER?” Must the artist suffer? Maybe the artist can just chill out and have a good time. We may never know what is possible in art. But Marissa is, at this very moment, not suffering.
She is napping.
