Hot! Lies Maculan’s “Opens” The Dream Shop

Now admittedly my expectations were quite low for this event.  Gallery openings are often a bit of a snooze fest for me, but as I entered the doors something inside told me this was not going to be that type of affair.  Maybe it was crossing paths with Countess Luann de Lessepsas as she was making her grand departure or my immediate notice of  the statuesque Erin Fetherston with her signature blond tresses.  Or the crowd filled with artsy eccentrics and other “in-crowd” types without the snootyness and pretension.   Though, I think it was because I was pleased to see the bar was not overflowing with free-loaders.  Almost immediately, I made my way over to entertain the bored servers, and by entertain I mean ask for a drink, and opted for a Bellini which knocked me off of my feet.  But fortunately for me there was an oddly placed seating arrangement furnished by the modern designs gurus of Bo-Concept.

When I finally pulled myself together and stopped seeing double I ventured to check out the exhibit of Lies Maculan’s  work and all interesting paintings/installations.  The installation was of life-sized photographs that were comprised of objects and human beings that represent our subconscious thoughts, deep I know.  Where a plane represents “Independence.”  While some were more literal,  “Have balls” represented by two golf balls.  Other notable images included “The perfect husband” who holds a mop and bucket in one hand and a briefcase in the other.  I like the way this girl thinks and a  piece that touched on the now socially acceptable plastic surgery epidemic, “Reinvent Yourself” was an image of a well structured woman who’s  face was replaced by a mirror.   And then there was my personal favorite, “Speak Your Mind”  that showcased a wooden hand with its middle finger up, it had been that type of day.

I found myself tempted for another drink and realized it was time to go.  Great art, cool people and an over successful party.

The Dream Shop, a photo-realistic room installation by Lies Maculan(30 West 21 Street (b/w 5th and 6th Avenues) runs through end of March.

Cheers, Jenaya Singleton
