The Social Life of Plants opens Dec 5th

Friday, November 21st, 2014

slop_front_450

myplasticheart presents new works by Brooklyn based artist Mariangela Tan featuring her latest fiber sculptures and illustrations. “The Social Life of Plants” explores the evolution of typical houseplants and how they adapt in an urban landscape. Maybe post apocalyptic, maybe alternate reality, Mariangela sees a future of self aware carnivorous plants, living and loving much like you and me. She invites you to take a glimpse into their world.

Please join us for the opening reception on December 5th from 6-9PM at myplasticheart in the Lower East Side. Mariangela Tan will be in attendance to discuss her work.

Please note : Many of the pieces will be available on a cash and carry basis and would make perfect Christmas gifts!

“You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone” Group Exhibition opens September 5th

Monday, August 25th, 2014

youllmissme_front_450

 

myplasticheart presents You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone a group exhibition exploring the themes of loss and regret, curated by Lou Pimentel. Each artist interprets his/her own understanding of the subject matter, resulting in a collection of paintings, sculptures and illustrations each telling a unique story spun from one universal idea. We are given a glimpse into each individual experience, and we are able to connect and find common ground.

“Being that the theme of the show can be broadly interpreted, it seemed fitting that the artists included express themselves in a wide range of mediums as well. I hand picked all the talent for this show. Some are well known, and others I feel deserve a little more attention because their work excites me. I kept the show small because I want the viewers to really appreciate each piece of art, and not feel overwhelmed. ” – Lou Pimentel

Join us for the opening reception on September 5th from 6-9PM EDT at myplasticheart in the Lower East Side NYC. Refreshments will be served. Some of the arists will be in attendance. The exhibition runs through October 5th 2014.
