BARBARELLA - Pretty Pretty Vernissage

Are you good or evil?

This is a different kind of Vernissage. It is inspired by the futuristic world depicted in Barbarella, an exciting and sexual heroine who combats evil and darkness.

If you're a lover of spirit, beautiful art, and sexiness you will be at the Mercury lounge January 17th to witness an explosion of life, freedom and creativity and be part of a magical evening. This show will explore the dichotomy between good and evil, negativity and positivity, love and hate, light and dark....

Let go and have all of your senses ignited by the artistic talent of Žaneta Pernicova and Luis Enrique Oliver. This exhibit will challenge, intrigue, touch and excite you. Both artists share a vision of playful, sexiness and love.

Paintings by Bohemian born Artist Žaneta Pernicova vary from floral and portrait subjects to abstract and erotic themes. Media and critics alike have noted her provocative and memorable style of painting. Žaneta is heavily involved in the Art scene locally and internationally and sponsors charitable projects.
She works with clients to create brilliant commissioned paintings and celebrates her own vision through her non-commissioned pieces.

Luis Enrique Oliver is a really hoopy frood born on the bi-sunny shores of beach planet U.R.Güai 6. Since then he has spent much of his bio-cycle roaming the Galaxy in search of InfiniteImprobability and Eccentrica to inspire his art. He has recently emerged from re-entry cryosleep after a thrillingly dangerous
multi-year mission to British Columbicon 9, home of the Bigtree Raygun
people and various large rubbery superintelligent ocean beings. A decade-long love affair with fellow astronavigatrix Barbarella and everything she stands for, as well as exciting conversations with Czech cosmopsychonaut Zaneta Pernicova, inspired the visual romp in this show. He hopes it blows your mind open like a Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster.

Let go. Be entertained.

Along with provocative and in-depth art there will be wine, food, dancing and an aura of freedom and acceptance. The magic begins at 7:30pm with lounge music, food and bar service. Stay, play and buy art until 10pm when the dancing and celebrating of the show begins…costumes, body and live painting while delicious DJ Ashley Gauthier provides body moving beats.
