First Friday Art Opening: Zoe Lavatelli Leach’s “Death Ark of Divine Fauna”

Trenton Free Public Library 120 Academy Street, Trenton, NJ

Join us at the library for Trenton's First Friday on May 6th! We will have the art opening for Zoe Lavatelli Leach's "Death Ark of Divine Fauna" in the Mezzanine Gallery, starting at 5pm. The show will run through May 25th, and can be viewed during regular library hours. Artist's Statement: The works created are playful while being macabre, as they use the darkness and beauty of an animal skull as content for many aspects of expression. In more than one way, they dwell in the tension of "in-betweens" -- formally, they contain both representation and abstraction, while the imagery straddles the duality of "high art" and "low-brow" kitsch or cliche. Zoe Lavatelli Leach, born in Dallas, TX, was immersed in art from a young age, growing up in a family of artists in Buffalo, NY. She currently resides in Trenton, and uses primarily oil paint, watercolor, and mixed media on canvas and paper. She obtained a BFA from The Cooper Union, and has both formally and informally studied various disciplines outside the art field. The study and practice of Buddhism has been particularly influential, with its focus on existential questions, and the impermanent nature of reality forming the basis for both the content she engages and the painting process itself.
