The Cathedral February Open House
February 28, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us at The Cathedral for our Open House event! Sip on cocktails, have a bite, and chat with member artists. We will feature artwork by atxGALS mixed-media artist Nevena Bentz.
Nevena thinks of her creations as chapters in a visual diary that express who she is at a certain time and place, offering a fragmented view into her inner world. Her work shows a quest to reinforce the contrast between the real and the imaginary by juxtaposing elements of each, so as to reconfigure reality in unexpected ways and blur the line of what is normal. Frequently, her ideas materialize in the process of tearing up the whole, creating chaos or exploring the space that results. “The minute something begins to look predictable, I take a turn and give it an unexpected new twist. I like to surprise myself constantly, and that invariably happens by distorting the obvious and deviating from conventions.”
Nevena believes that our need to create is driven by the desire to bring a tangible proof of the soul’s existence and give a voice to our subconscious. Nevena’s art is a tribute to freedom, strength, authenticity and beauty, concepts she has chosen to communicate both with her work’s themes and with the process of creation. She strives for her art to speak for itself and for the viewer to have freedom in interpreting and perceiving it in the exact same way she has freedom in creating it. Nevena’s art has been shown in numerous gallery exhibits and is part of private collections throughout the US. IG: @nevenabentzart
