Mary J. Saran: Escape Earth

June 2 - 25, 2017


Amos Eno Gallery presents Escape Earth, an exhibition of mixed media works by Mary J. Saran. The opening reception will be held on Friday, June 2nd from 6 - 9 PM at 56 Bogart Street in Brooklyn, NY, directly across from the Morgan Ave L train stop.​

Escape Earth features Saran’s recent works that explore intersections of art and astronomy. Using a mixed media technique that breaks the boundaries between painting and sculpture, the work poses questions about the known universe, human perception and how that perception visualizes space and time. NASA discovers more and more exoplanets every day, even as our own is destroyed. Saran visualizes the landscapes of these yet unknown planets and areas of space to be explored as a window to reflect back onto our own world. Saran paints the galaxies and phenomena that we have yet to discover, the unnamed and unknown. The prospect of human extinction weighs heavily on Saran, and she focuses it into crystal and mineral compositions that suggest and yearn for the search for alien life, dreams of efficient space travel and colonization of other worlds.
