Amy Zerner: Collage & Couture
East Hampton artist Amy Zerner will have a retrospective exhibition of her NEA award winning mixed-media collages and Spiritual Couture™ one-of-a-kind story jackets at MM Fine Art, located at #4 North Main Street, Southampton, NY. There will be an OPENING RECEPTION on Saturday, September 21st, from 6-8 PM. Telephone 631.259.2274 for further information from the gallery.
Amy Zerner’s work, ancient as well as modern in its cross-cultural sweep, is ultimately a sacred art. Each tapestry, collage, or Spiritual Couture™ garment is amazing in its detail and needs to be carefully studied, appreciated in the bits and pieces by which it is made, to truly absorb the power of the entire composition. Her images and jackets emerge out of the build-up and, in the end, reveal a picture that is powerfully evocative of dreams, memories, stories, and longings.
Zerner’s work is filled with meditative gardens, powerful goddesses and healing sanctuaries. The materials are luxe, lush and detailed with the overall result being a piece of art or wearable world made opulent with many layers of magic and meaning.
Not only does Zerner create mystical dreamscape tapestries; she also designs art-adorned Spiritual Couture apparel, which she has sold exclusively through Bergdorf Goodman for 20 years. Each luxurious garment is designed to capture the essence of the wearer’s soul. The artist works with her client to discover that individual’s persona, and then translates the information into the colors, symbols and energies of a special commissioned piece.
Zerner’s art is also the basis for numerous bestselling mind/body/spirit books she has produced with her husband, Monte Farber. These include the coffee table art book “Paradise Found: The Visionary art of Amy Zerner”, “The Enchanted Tarot”, and many more, with over 3 million copies in print in 17 languages. Some original pieces from her books will be included in the exhibit.
Experience this feast for the senses. ENCHANTED WORLDS: The Spiritual Collages & Couture of Amy Zerner will run through September 30th.
