Quinne Myers: Home Feels Like
On display at Dobbin Street Vintage Outpost
1033 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn NY
September 14—25, 2019
Closing reception: September 25, 6:00pm—8:00pm
ABOUT THE SHOW
Home Feels Like is an exhibition of watercolor paintings exploring the concept of patching together a home, both physically and emotionally. Romantic scenes in pen and pastel watercolor tones depict women in ethereal, lingerie-inspired garments, crafting spells beneath the moon or lounging in a forest on antique furniture.
These twee, slice-of-life snapshots seem to bend between our real modern home and a delicate fairy tale universe, with compositional inspiration from decadent Rococo-era French painters and sparkly Japanese illustrators of the 1980s. Decorated with pink rose garlands, giant iridescent pearls, metallic details, and other sweetly surreal objects, each piece evokes the feeling of peering into an entire world through one tiny looking glass, while reflecting the curated patchwork setting of a vintage-store-turned-gallery.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Quinne Myers is a multi-passionate creative living in Brooklyn, NY, whose art reflects the way she sees the world: whimsical, welcoming, and full of romance. Every aspect of her work tells sweet, meaningful stories, whether she is consulting for lingerie start-ups, writing engaging web content, or crafting unique textile designs. Her illustrative watercolor paintings are inspired by astrology, mythology, psychology, and the ways women connect themselves to the world.
