Made in Her Image: Sketches, Figure Drawings and Paintings
depicting the Power of Female Spirit







Minneapolis, MN.
March 12, 2011—Twin Cities based painter Jennifer Soriano will exhibit
sketches, figure drawings and paintings from her series, Made in Her Image, in
a public exhibition at the Robbin Gallery. The exhibition opens Saturday, April
2, 2011 and runs through the month of April. All images are available for
purchase.

Jennifer Soriano is fascinated by
the human figure; its anatomical structure, its range of emotions, and its vast
variety of texture and colors. Her current exhibit depicts the human figure
-women, specifically- as a blend of Byzantine iconography and Art Nouveau.
While iconography may bring to mind stiff, reserved, indifferent figures;
combining it with Art Nouveau provides a softness and fluidity to her pieces.
Jennifer notes that religious icons offer a means of seeing God through a
stylized non-personal figure. Her work provides a glimpse of the celestial
through personalized human figures -both
secular and religious- while retaining the symbolic patterning of traditional
iconography.

Robbin Gallery is located at 4915 42nd Ave North,
Robbinsdale,
MN., 55422. An opening reception,
including food and refreshment, will take place Saturday, April 2, from
12:00-4:00. Additional times are available by appointment by calling
763-537-5906.
