Marissa Paternoster
“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!

Dear World,

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.

I have been fascinated with, and have been making art for as long as I can remember. What used to be stringent, detailed drawings -for the first thirty years of my life- has been freed into sloppy, mutant distillations of my racing mind. 

The evolution of my style was partially born from finally having sympathy for the strained muscles in my hand; moving the action into the greater part of the arm. This allowed me to more wrecklessly and more comfortably apply (or reduce) a stroke. My current process is also the result of learning to create a dialogue between me, my tools and mediums, and time. Sometimes these conversations are long and argumentative and sometimes they are short and funny. Basically, every now and then I look down, my hands are a mess, and I feel pretty fulfilled.

Day-to-day I am interested in dynamics and nuances of all things: The imperfections on a flat surface, complex minimalism, and other paradoxes. Mentally cataloging these experiences and wonderment allows me to later hide the clues to these ideas in my artwork for the observer to discover for themselves. Also, a little humor doesn’t hurt.
