February 8 – May 1, 2011 : Eden Re-imagined: Leo Chiachio & Daniel Giannone
Opening Reception: February 13, 211, 2pm.
Eden Re-imagined is an intimate look into the private and imaginary world of life partners Leo Chiachio and Daniel Giannone. Their self-referential stitched embroideries depict the artists in various landscapes, often disguised as indigenous people and include their beloved dachshund, “Piolin”. Their embroidered stitcheries range from intimate small scale portraits to lavishly embellished pieces with carefully rendered details of their faces, clothing and environment. Included in this exhibition is the large scale installation Brujas Protecturas (Protective Witches) which shows the artists in shamanistic garb framing their dog.
