With Intentions Holistic Studio presents New Beginnings, a group exhibition on view January 16th – March 16th, 2021 in studio and online.

In an unprecedented time, reality has never revealed itself to be a more surreal experience. Now in the quiet of the winter, the world whispers possibilities of new life to come. New Beginnings presents work that explores ideas of budding life, awakening, and renewal by means of abstraction, symbolism, and repurposed materials.

Throughout the exhibition, enjoy virtual artist talks, studio visits, and exhibition walk throughs. Visit the gallery during shop hours, Tuesday – Thursday from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm and Saturday 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at With Intentions Holistic Studio, 1700 Main St, Lake Como, NJ 07719 (corner storefront on 17th and Main in Belmar/Lake Como).

Meet DARKRECONSTRUCTION… I am an emerging non-binary queer artist working in acrylic and watercolor paints, creating abstract expressionist paintings, and a graphic designer with over a decade of experience. I currently live and create art in Queens, NY.

My work focuses on the contrast between urban life and nature. I am inspired by concrete walls overgrown by ivy and tree branches, train underpasses covered in graffiti and grass, a strong New York summer rainstorm beating against my window, the decaying Red Hook warehouses, tiny alleys, and the way the air smells on the first few days of September. It is my aim to create paintings that bring a moment of serenity and calm to the viewer. Life is kind of a cycle of life, death, decay, and nourishment, and rebirth, and thriving, and then repeating it over again. Especially with life forms like algae, moss, mushrooms, etc – they just spring up wherever they’d like! It’s quite evident in the city where weeds grow from cracks, moss takes over walls, and mushrooms spring up on sidewalks by the parks.
