The Koi Moon is said to appear when the water is still and words are mere reflections. A blessing to some mystical and disconcerting to others the moon waxes and wanes as does fortune and the fickleness of man.
MANO Fine Art is proud to present a closing reception for Allegories of the Koi Moon, a collective exhibition featuring the work of Long Looi Lee, MANO and Marcy Grosso.
Long Looi Lee was well on his way to becoming an opera singer when he received a scholarship to the Pratt Institute in New York. More than forty years later, Lee continues to incorporate elements of his Asian heritage in his work. Painting koi is both nostalgic and relaxing for Marcy Grosso who recalls feeding the fish in her familyâ€™s koi pond flakes of oatmeal when fish food was no longer available in Cuba. MANO is passionate about incorporating unlikely materials in his art; ordinary jute and tree trunks are transformed into extraordinary works for Allegories of the Koi Moon.
MANO Fine Art Project Space is the working studio of Miami-based artist MANO and an exhibition and project space for art related events. MANO Fine Art is one of the founding members of the Bird Road Art Walk that is held on the third Saturday of each month.
