First Friday Opening Reception: Friday, January 6 | 7 – 10 p.m.
Space 1026 is excited to present a solo exhibition of Marissa Paternoster’s artwork. Paternoster, perhaps best known as the frontwoman of the legendary DIY punk band Screaming Females, always has something up her sleeve. She is an accomplished illustrator and multimedia artist who has shown widely in print, galleries, and public spaces throughout the US.
Marissa Paternoster was born very small in Elizabeth, NJ. She grew slightly larger over the ensuing years, during which she went to college in a drug haze, learned guitar strums, ate many eggs (not all at once), and finally moved in with wonderful friends and a perfect dog in Philadelphia.
With these works she asks, “WHY MUST THE ARTIST SUFFER?” Must the artist suffer? Maybe the artist can just chill out and have a good time. We may never know what is possible in art. But Marissa is, at this very moment, not suffering.
She is napping.
